Underrated ”American Idol” contestants: Jessica Sierra

FINISHING POSITION Tenth place (season 4)

GREATEST HIT A bawdy, throaty take on ”The Boys Are Back in Town” that left even the unflappable Mr. Cowell blushing

WHY WE’RE BITTER We never understood Simon’s insistence that Sierra suffered from a lack of ”likability.” Unless, of course, you don’t like a genuinely nice gal with a big voice, an even bigger smile, and the ability to put her own stamp on Idol‘s well-worn songbook.
