‘Idol’ Runner-Up Jessica Sanchez + Bette Midler Set to Join ‘Glee’
How much celeb power can we get on one show? There really is no show with a track record of celebrities like ‘Glee’. And just to remind us how awesome they are, they are recruiting even more big names to join the cast. So who is joining the cast? This round it’s a former ‘Idol’ and a Grammy winning artist/comedian.
Sources have confirmed that ‘Idol’ runner-up Jessica Sanchez will join the cast with a recurring role at McKinley High. Jessica is the right age and a vocal powerhouse, I highly doubt that she will disappoint. She may have lost the ‘American Idol’ crown to Phillip Phillips, but winning a spot on ‘Glee’ could be just what she needs to send her career soaring.
Superstar Bette Midler has also been tapped to guest star on the show. The show’s creator Ryan Murphy asked Midler while she was on stage at the God’s Love We Deliver Golden Hearts Awards event in New York City. Bette responded with a huge “YES!”. The two both took to their Twitter pages to express their excitement. While there are no details on the character and details, Midler expressed she would love to play Rachel’s (played by Leah Michelle) energetic, entertaining, and incredibly talented grandmother.
