American Idol 2012: Jessica Sanchez and DeAndre Brackensick Dating!

Lots of big news coming out of American Idol 2012 runner-up Jessica Sanchez’s camp. It was reported that she signed a deal with Interscope Records and is working on her album! Now, apparently there is some love brewing on the 2012 American Idols Live Tour. Jessica Sanchez recently announced that her and DeAndre Brackensick, fellow American Idol Season 11 Top 10 finalist!

In a recent Internet livestream, Jessica Sanchez teased fans about the relationship with DeAndrea Brackensick. “I got a secret and I want you guys to guess. I’ll nod if it’s no or yes,” said Sanchez. A little later, the American Idol 2012 runner-up admitted that it was Brackensick, her 17-year-old fellow American Idol 2012 finalist. She told fans: “He’s my boyfriend. Love you guys.”

Jessica Sanchez finished second this season on American Idol, behind winner Phillip Phillips. Like I reported before, Sanchez has signed a recording contract with Interscope Records, so she is working on that and is also being homeschooled. DeAndre Brackensick finished eighth on American Idol 2012 and had all the girls swooning over his curly, sexy locks. Apparently it worked on Sanchez as well. Brackensick graduated from high school in May.

In a recent interview with Zap2it about her new album, Jessica said: “What I did on the show was more competition mode. It was to show my vocals — ‘let’s sing some Celine Dion and Mariah Carey.’ Now it’s like, ‘I’m Jessica Sanchez and I have to do me. It’s more of the urban, Rihanna kind of feel and the R&B kind of stuff. A little bit of pop. It’s just a big mixture of stuff, so it’s exciting.”

    For me, there’s something goin on between Jessica and Phillip..pretty obvious..u can see her tumblr and FB..i can’t blame her..for seeing Phil wid someone else is painful..then,comes this sudden,abrupt announcement that she’s dating Dre..what’s up wid this?..sorry but im not buying..i see this as a cover up..Her fellow contestants seems not pleased with this..except hannah..the Gf of Phillip.
