Sometimes on American Idol, a contestant comes up short and we never really hear from them again. But sometimes, coming up short launches them into a bigger career than anyone else could have imagined. Such is the case with last season's runner up, Jessica Sanchez.


Digital Spy is reporting that Jessica will be one of the performers on this week's American Idol Top 9 results show. Joining her wil be Ne-Yo and the duo will be performing their duet "Give Me Everything (Tonight)".


On last year's season of American Idol, Jessica was the runner up to Phillip Phillips, but that hasn't held her back in creating a career of her own within the music industry and this return to the American Idol stage should mark the first of many returns from Jessica.
