American Idol Alum Allison Iraheta Looks Totally Different These Days

|

During season eight of American Idol the only truly memorable contestant, let’s face it, was Adam Lambert. Despite the fact that Lambert didn’t win the season, he remains the most successful singer to come out of the show in 2009. While most of the other hopefuls that year have been forgotten, we will always have a soft spot in our heart for Allison Iraheta, the lone girl in the final four that season whose voice was way more mature than her seventeen years.

Cut to this week when we spotted some pics of Iraheta performing in Los Angeles and we almost didn’t recognize her. The girl has lost some weight since she was a contestant on the show (check out a pic from Season 8 here) and has a darker, less severe dye job, too. We’re loving her makeover and hope it helps her finally get the recognition she deserves. What do you think, Idol fans?
