Jessica Sanchez might not have won "American Idol," but she is set to make her debut on another hit FOX show. The singer, 16, is reportedly set to join the gang at McKinley High this year, according to sources.
No word on the role the pretty teen will play on the show, but we think it definitely needs to be something with a lot of diva-tude. She definitely had the voice to make it big on the show.
Sanchez isn't the only "Idol" alum to make it big on television, though.
Is there anything Carrie Underwood can't do? The blond country superstar is a pro at releasing hit albums - and she's getting pretty good at holding her own on television, too. In fact, the 29-year-old is set to host the 2012 CMA Awards for the fifth time on November 1 with pal Brad Paisley.
The hosting pair seems to work because they're like brother and sister, she said in 2011.
"Brad's great. Brad is the big brother I never had," the Oklahoma native said in 2011. "He messes with me and picks on me like a little sister, so we work well together."
Katharine McPhee might have lost to Taylor Hicks on "American Idol," but she's the one with the enduring career. The pretty singer is the lead character in the NBC drama "Smash." The show has been hit and miss with critics, but it's a resounding hit with fans - it'll be back for a second season next year.
McPhee said that her time on "Idol" didn't have the stigma that some people says it has.
"There's always some sort of obstacle to overcome," she told Entertainment Weekly earlier this year. "In my case, yeah, I'm not going to lie and say there weren't certain casting people that didn't wanna see me because they didn't think I could act. That's fine. If anything, it made me more determined."
Jennifer Hudson might not have found her success on television, but she did manage to win an Oscar post-"Idol" with her role in "Dreamgirls."
Hudson said her success is all thanks to "Idol."
Do you think Jessica Sanchez has a future in television?
