We celebrate the end of season three by checking in with fan-favorite contestants from years past. By Serena Kappes

NIKKI MCKIBBIN

Season One
Idol rock chick McKibbin, 25 (right, in 2003), is running a karaoke business in Dallas while raising her 6-year-old son, Tristen. She also has recorded songs for a solo CD that she is shopping to labels. "If I don't have anything when all this is said and done, I still want to be able to do what I love, which is sing," she says.
