28 of 31: Jessica Sanchez might have come in second place to winner Phillip Phillips during the 11th season of 'American Idol,' but the singer has continued to pursue music following the show.

After 'Idol,' Sanchez was signed to Interscope Records, where she recorded her debut album 'Me, You and the Music.' She made her television debut performance of the song 'Tonight,' which also featured recording artist Ne-Yo, during the twelfth season of 'Idol.' In addition to releasing her debut album in 2013, Sanchez scored a recurring role on the popular musical series 'Glee' as Frida Romero.

Sanchez began dating fellow 'Idol' contestant DeAndre Brackensick following their time on the show, however the two are no longer a couple.
