MANILA, Philippines - "American Idol Season 11" runner-up Jessica Sanchez expressed her excitement to be part of the hit US musical show "Glee."

"@GLEEonFOX @americanidol Very very excited :)!! Thank you for the opportunity!," Sanchez said.

She also thanked "Glee" producer Ryan Murphy and added that she can't wait to start working with him.

On Monday (Tuesday in Manila), US website TVLine reported that Sanchez is set to join “Glee.”

TVLine, however, said that there are no details yet as to what will be the role of the Filipino-Mexican-American singer in the show.
