American Idol is taking over Glee one enthusiastic super starlet at a time! Hot off the heels of news that Season 11 runner-up Jessica Sanchez was in talks to guest star, we’re now learning that Season 10 finalist Pia Toscano auditioned for Glee showrunners — at their request.

"They absolutely loved her," a source tells E! Online. "She's a huge fan of the show." Sadly, Pia's potential part was later written out of the show, but E!’s source says the Glee team is interested in getting her a different role in the future.

Meanwhile, Pia has just landed her very first film role: playing the role of Alyssa in Grace Unplugged, a flick about an aspiring Christian musician who tries to make it in Hollywood. Sounds fab!

Reach for the stars, Pia! We can't wait to see where your post Idol fame takes you. Please just don't go the way of Justin Guarini.
