American Idol runner up signs to Interscope as former contestant dropped from Sony

American Idol runner up signs to Interscope as former contestant dropped from Sony

The deal follows on from news of Kellie Pickler - a contestant from series five of the television talent show - being dropped from her deal at Sony Music Nashville.

Sanchez confirmed the news on Twitter, a few weeks after she came second in the singing competition to Phillip Phillips. A urban-leaning album is expected as Sanchez revealed in an interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer that her album is "going to be more of urban and R&B, with a bit of pop."

She is also rumoured to be negotiating with the creators of Glee regarding appearances on the forthcoming season of the show.

Kellie Pickler, a country singer who competed during season five of the show and was signed to Sony Music Nashville, has been dropped from the label - reportedly because her third album suffered from poor sales. It was the last album on her contract.

Pickler's manager told ABC News Radio: "Kellie's contract with Sony came to an end and they mutually decided not to renew."
