Allison Iraheta, American Idol

Allison Iraheta finished fourth on season eight of American Idol. She's only 16 years old.

This Los Angeles native has appeared in a few commercials and lists volleyball, soccer and running as a few of her favorite activities. She sang the song "Natural Woman" as part of her initial audition and chose "Alone" by Heart for her semifinal performance.

She continued to advance on the show by perfectly playing into her rock star persona. Simon Cowell said she was the only hope for a female to come out on top of season eight. This may have been true, but the dream ended at the final four.

Iraheta was voted out following her rock n' roll week performance. She has a bright future ahead of her, one that includes a summer 2010 concert with Adam Lambert.
