‘American Idol’ notes: Jessica Sanchez, Adam Lambert, Nick Jonas

Thanks to some touring there is plenty going on at the moment in the world of “American Idol,” and with that in mind we are kicking off this Thursday morning edition of the show “notes” with the latest on Jessica Sanchez.

Jessica didn’t expect to date Deandre – In case you haven’t hear just yet, the show’s reigning runner-up is now in a relationship with her fellow teen contestant Deandre Brackensick. We already know that these two were not dating until after the season wrapped … but was it still a surprise that they ended up together? Both yes and no.

As a part of a lengthy new interview with Newsday, Jessica opens up a little bit about the dating process, which really went from a small crush to a relationship in a blink of an eye:

“We were always best friends on the show … I always had a little crush on him, but this happened out of nowhere.”

On a different note, Jessica did not necessarily deny that she is in talks for a role on “Glee,” but nothing has been confirmed here as of yet.

Adam Lambert goes acapella – The video we have here is pretty brief, but it’s still worth watching if you love Adam’s voice. While in Japan this week, the season 8 star gave an interview in front of a beautiful garden and sang a few lines from his current single “Never Close Our Eyes.” The more we see his new blonde look, the more we dig it.

The latest Nick Jonas rumor – Since we’ve been covering at length the process to find the next judge for the show, it only seems appropriate that we talk a little bit about the latest tabloid rumor. According to HollywoodLife, Nick Jonas could be on the cusp of joining the show, and it is all based on a test to see if he has chemistry with another new face in Mariah Carey.

There is part of this story that we believe in, as we know that producers do like to test out chemistry for judges before hiring them — after all, this makes some sense. What we don’t buy is that Mariah would be the one making the decision of whether or not she and Nick get along. While she may have input, she’s at the end of the day just an employee — and the producers will eventually figure out who they want along with Fox.
