22 of 31: Crystal Bowersox, who was known for her soulful voice and dreadlocked hair, came in second place to winner Lee DeWyze during the ninth season of 'American Idol.'

Bowersox released her debut album, 'Farmer's Daughter,' in December 2010, which outsold champion DeWyze's debut album released earlier that year. Bowersox also guest starred on an episode of the ABC series 'Body of Proof' and released a second album, 'All That for This,' in 2013.

It was announced that Bowersox would play Patsy Cline in the Broadway production 'Always, Patsy Cline' beginning in the fall of 2013.
