Jessica Sanchez didn't win the big prize on American Idol, but she seems to be doing pretty darn well for herself.

The 17-year-old diva-in-training hit the stage for the iHeartRadio American Idol tour stop in New York City on Wednesday night and made a couple of big announcements. Sanchez revealed that she's been signed to Interscope Records (no surprise there, the label signs most of the top Idol finalists every season) and that she's been hard at work on her new album.

So hard at work, in fact, that she's already got a new single called "Fairytale," which she debuted for the crowd. Sanchez's vocals sound just as incredible as ever on the track, which is an upbeat pop ditty that sound a bit like something Taylor Swift or Carly Rae Jepsen might sing. Take a listen below, then hit the comments with your thoughts on "Fairytale." Do you think Jessica Sanchez has scored a hit, or do you think the song is too generic to stand out in today's crowded musical landscape?
