Jessica Sanchez is returning to the American Idol stage…
The 17-year-old half-Mexican singer and last season’s runner-up will be back on Idol during Thursday night’s results show.
Right before the number of season 12 finalists is cut from nine to eight, Sanchez will perform on Fox’s reality singing competition, debuting her new single, “Tonight,” accompanied by special guest Ne-Yo.
Sanchez’s debut album via 19 Recordings/Interscope Records, called Me, You & the Music, will be available for pre-order on iTunes starting on March 21.
Sanchez’s fans will be able to download the new single the same night of her performance. And a fan-exclusive pre-order will also be available on March 21 at Sanchez’s official site and includes an instant download of “Tonight.”
Sanchez’s album is said to be “high-energy” and “beat-soaked.”
Meantime, Sanchez will guest star as a legendary singer from a rival high school on the May 2 episode of Fox’s Glee. She’ll also appear on the May 9 season finale.
