Many fans and critics alike pegged this pint-sized singer as the one who would end American Idol’s streak of WGWGs. But majority ruled, and Jessica was ultimately named the runner up to Phillip Phillips during the nail-biting American Idol Season 11 finale.
Judging from what she’s been up to lately, we have a hard time thinking Idol will be Jessica’s career swan song. She’s already slated to have a meaty multi-episode arc on the hit show Glee, and her debut album will drop in Spring 2013.
So far, things are looking bright for Jessica in 2013!
