Jessica Sanchez is joining the cast of 'Glee!'

Guess who's joining the cast of Glee? None other than our favorite former American Idol contestant, Jessica Sanchez! That's right--the 16-year-old is closing in on a deal to appear in multiple episodes in the show's next season.

Though there's no word on what role she'll be taking on yet, she will most likely join the show midway through the first half of Season 4 after she completes the American Idol live summer tour. Wow, considering Idol only ended a short while ago, Sanchez sure is one busy girl. Besides the tour and now her possible appearance on Glee, she's also working on her first album!

I have to admit, I'm not a die-hard Glee viewer, but I think Sanchez will make an absolutely perfect fit for the show. After all, we know that she has the impressive singing abilities to hold her own among the other amazing vocalists--which is key because my guess is her role will have her competing against one of the other female cast members in an epic battle of diva extraordinaires.
