Naima may not have had the biggest voice in the competition, but she certainly had one of the biggest personalities. And if she has her way, she’ll be putting it to use — not just on stage, but on screen as well. I chatted with Naima at our Entertainment Weekly photo shoot just a few days before her American Idol elimination and she talked about wanting to play a superhero on film. Unfortunately for her, her top choice — whom she describes as her “idol growing up” — has already been taken. Find out the identity of the hero in question in the video player below, and also see why Naima is extra excited about the upcoming AI summer tour and what it is going to enable her to do for her family. Then, if you missed it, make sure check out our behind-the-scenes conversation with Thia, where she explains whom she was planning to root for once she was out of the competition.
