‘Idol’ Finalist Channels Her Alter-Ego

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Beyonce has an on- stage alter-ego, and so does American Idol finalist Allison Iraheta.

Iraheta – who officially made it into Idol’s Top 12 last Thursday (Feb. 26) – says she’s a completely different person when she hits the stage, much like Beyonce’s sassy alter ego, Sasha Fierce.

Iraheta isn’t sure how she’s able to focus and lock it up before a performance, but figures it’s because she loves singing so much.

If she had to pick a name for her on-stage persona, Iraheta thinks it would have the word “wild” in there somewhere.

Though Simon Cowell criticized her for being a bit boring off stage, Iraheta assures that she’s not lame at all and will showcase her personality much more in the coming weeks.

She plans to “chill and relax,” avoid the nerves, and possibly switch up her hair color from fiery red to purple.

Idol airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays on FOX.
