We couldn’t think of a better post-American Idol gig for Jessica Sanchez than her upcoming stint on Glee.

The pint-sized Season 11 runner-up is poised to join the hit show in a recurring role, which will be filmed in January to air in the spring. She told E! News that she’ll definitely be in “a couple” of episodes. And as for those rumors that Jessica is going to be a new love interest for Finn (Cory Monteith)?

“Everybody thinks that, but I’m not even sure,” said Jessica.

Speaking to Hollywood Life, she said of her new character, “It’s all a mystery to me right now,” adding that she’d love to have scenes with every member of the Glee cast. “I like all of them and I am excited to sing next to anyone.”

We’re pretty excited, too!
