On May 6 2009 Allison Iraheta was eliminated from American Idol season 8. She was the only female contestant left on what was a male-dominated season for the reality show.

This season’s rocker chick was no match for Adam Lambert, Danny Gokey or even Kris Allen who made it to the final three and get to go back home and sing for the many fans and supporters in their hometown. I wonder who will get the biggest welcome?

Allison Iraheta was the yongest contestant to make it into the top 13 and one of the four females there. She was sixteen when she auditioned and turned 17 while on the show. She’s been singing she’s she was a little child. She even won a competition in 2007 called “Telemundo’s QuinceaƱera: Mama Quiero Ser Artista” which had a prize of $50000 and a recording contract. Apparently, it seems the promoters of the show never followed suit with the contract.

Allison could easily spotted among the other contestants with her red as in artificially colored hair. She was also noticeable early on for not being too eloquent when host Ryan Seacrest would ask her question during the show or when she taped interviews.

Although the judges praised her duo with Adam Lambert on rock week it just wasn’t enough to secure her a spot on the top 3. Allison Iraheta has been in the bottom three more than once and it seemed rather logical that she would be the one leaving before the three remaining ‘boys’.
