It’s a done deal: Jessica Sanchez, whose monster pipes and near-perfect pitch carried her all the way to a second-place finish on Season 11 of American Idol, has closed a deal to recur on Glee, TVLine has learned exclusively. There are no details on what role Glee executive producer Ryan Murphy might have in store for the 16-year-old California native or when she will first appear on screen.

What part do you think Jessica will play? What songs would you like her to tackle on Glee?

Glee executive producer and co-creator Ryan Murphy just tweeted, “Michael Ausiello broke news of Jessica Sanchez on Glee. With voices like Jessica, Lea, Naya, Melissa, Amber, and Jenna…Streisand episode?” If you want to follow Ryan on twitter, he’s @MrRPMurphy
