Season 11 runner-up Jessica Sanchez is getting into the acting game with a role on Fox’s “Glee.”
She’s the first “Idol” alum that I know of to get a part on that show.
TVLine says she may be a love interest for Finn in what is being dubbed a “recurring role,” which means it could go on multiple episodes.
Mediabase 24/7 chart update
Maroon 5’s ‘One More Night” is no. 1. Nicki Minaj’s “Pound the Alarm” falls to 22. Phillip Phillips’ “Home” edges up to 24.
Maroon 5 is No. 1 here, too. Phillips is at No. 5.
Carrie Underwood extends her incredible seven-year streak of top 2 hits on the country charts to 16 in a row, going back to “Jesus, Take the Wheel” in 2005. Her latest single “Blown Away” is now No. 1 on Mediabase 24/7 and Billboard. Casey James’ “Crying on a Suitcase” remains at No. 24. Lauren Alaina garners her third top 40 hit with “18 Inches” peaking in at No. 39.
Jason Castro’s ‘Only a Mountain” is holding at No. 21.
Mike Darnell, long time reality guru on Fox TV, told Hollywood Reporter that he wasn’t perturbed by the Nicki-Mariah feud, that it created “buzz” for the show, even if, in my mind, it’s not the type of buzz that will necessarily draw people to the show but even turn some folks off.
I’ve only watched maybe 2.5 episodes of “The Voice” so far this year, but it’s doing very well in the ratings, killing “Dancing With the Stars” among younger viewers, even if DWTS draws more overall fans. Last night, it pulled a 4.6 18-49 rating vs. 2.1 for the DWTS results show. “The Voice” drew 12 million viewers, while DWTS drew about 13 million. It’s also soundly beating “The X Factor,” which I’m actually watching in full because I like it better.
Paula Abdul enjoyed her stint on DWTS as a guest judge this week, telling US magazine: “I hope you could see how much fun I was having. It felt like home and was very natural.”
Scotty McCreery’s Christmas album is out now. Scotty is splitting his time touring and going to college. Impressive!
Kelly Clarkson’s greatest hits album comes out next month. She’s the first “Idol” alum to have a greatest hits album! This cover looks kind of lame, though:
