Season 3 winner: Fantasia Barrino
It hasn't been easy for Barrino since her "Idol" win back in 2004. Financial woes, health issues and a reported suicide attempt have tainted her success. She was on the verge of a comeback with her own VH1 reality show "Fantasia for Real" and the album "Back to Me." But a scandal involving an affair and a sex tape caused Barrino's career to derail. Despite the drama, she appeared on Season 10 of "Idol" and won a Best Female R&B Vocal Performance Grammy for her new song, "Bittersweet." Recently, she had a child (Dallas Xavier) with a man (Antaun Cook) who is still married, and she is slated to perform at the 2012 Essence Festival.
