Diana DeGarmo Young

From American Idol to Broadway to… Genoa City? Hey, don’t knock it: The Young and the Restless needed a singer so they called upon season 3 runner-up Diana DeGarmo to play one – but with a bit of a twist.

Starting Oct. 31, DeGarmo will portray a Jersey girl named Angelina, the ambitious daughter of mob boss Angelo Veneziano (Mike Starr). His little angel wants a career in music, but she’s not exactly the next Mariah Carey. Check out DeGarmo’s get-up. (Eat your heart out, Fantasia?)
