MANILA, Philippines -- "American Idol" Season 11 runner-up Jessica Sanchez is coming back to the Philippines next year for a solo concert.

In her official Twitter account, Sanchez hinted that she has a big surprise for her Pinoy fans.

"I've got some exciting news to share soon for all my bluejays in the Philippines. ...Can you guess what my big news is?" Sanchez tweeted.

"I love Valentine's Day," Sanchez said in another tweet.

On Thursday, Renen de Guia of Ovation Productions told that Sanchez will be staging a Valentine show on February 14, 2013 at the Araneta Coliseum.

He also said that "American Idol" finalist Colton Dixon will be Sanchez's special guest at the concert.

"Yes. It's Feb. 14 at Araneta. Opening act is Colton Dixon from last year's 'American Idol,'" de Guia said.

This will be Sanchez's second time to perform in the Philippines. Last September, Sanchez, along with the rest of this season's Top 10 contestants, performed for the "American Idol Live Tour 2012," also at the Araneta Coliseum.

Next year is shaping up to be a busy one for the half-Filipino singer as she is set to release her debut album in the spring. She is also set to appear on the popular TV show "Glee."
