Hallie Day from Baltimore, Md., closes down "American Idol" in Pittsburgh. She says "music and my husband saved my life." She talks about trying to overdose on pills at one point and how her now-husband -- who seems like a salt of the earth kind of guy -- then helped her claw her way back up.

Bellllltttts out "I Will Survive." She's almost shrill, but there's power behind it. Obviously real passion, too. "I can see you up there. I can see you stealing the show," says Jennifer Lopez.

Yeah, she's got some steel there.
