In this two-part interview, Season 3 runner-up, Diana Degarmo, talks to Josh Skinner backstage at her off-Broadway show, The Toxic Avenger, about her first album, her EP of country songs, and the Australian cyber-stalker who made her life hell for three years.
When the time came to cut her post-Idol album, Diana says she was literally handed an album full of songs to learn. She had no input into the recording process, and felt connected to only a few of the songs. It’s no wonder the album bombed–she still holds the record of lowest selling Idol runner-up ever.
Avenger closes on January 3rd–after she’ll be heading back to Nashville, although there is a possibility that she’ll be back in New York playing “Chris” in the Broadway company of the musical Carrie (Yes, the Stephen King horror classic).
