Mathai (Season 2)
Mathai was my early pick to win it all in season 2, because her audition song, “Rumor Has It” was sassy, confident, and ultra cool. And it is so not easy to pull off an Adele song without sounding like a copycat or failing miserably. She turned 3 chairs, but ultimately didn’t make it to the finals. You can imagine my surprise when she got eliminated before even making it to the top 12. Mathai is still active on Twitter, so be sure to follow her here. You can also buy her fabulous EP “Girl Like Me” on iTunes.
