ANTONELLA BARBA, 20

Point Pleasant, N.J.
In the spirit of Taylor Hicks's Soul Patrol, the Catholic University student already has an online support group: the Fantonellas. Her No. 1 booster is hardly surprised. "Antonella's very talented, and she'll represent New Jersey in a classy way," says best friend Amanda Coluccio who also auditioned for Idol but got the boot in Hollywood. "She could add some intelligence to the show, which it really needs."
