American Idol alum Thia Megia has joined Days of our Lives as a new nurse named Haley Chen -- and it looks like romance is already on the horizon for the fictional medical professional.

The latest casting news from Days of our Lives will be music to American Idol fans' ears: Thia Megia, who competed on the reality singing show back in 2011, has joined the NBC soap opera as a new character named Haley Chen.

Most of the details surrounding the Filipino-American singer's role are being kept under wraps at this time, but the show's new app reports that Haley is a nurse who gains the attention of legacy character J.J. Deveraux (Casey Moss).

Megia took to Instagram with news of her casting. "Salem, here I come!" she wrote. "I am so blessed to be a part of the DOOL fam and I can't wait for you to join me on my journey as Haley Chen on Days of Our Lives."
