Danny Gokey and Allison Iraheta

Who? Season Eight's third- and fourth-place finishers, who scored their own record deals.

Peak: Gokey went country, turning out a Top Five album with his 2010 debut, My Best Days, and is still going strong; Iraheta opened on Adam Lambert’s Glam Nation tour last summer.

Low: Gokey’s still in the fast lane, but after Iraheta’s debut dance-rock album, Just Like You, failed to take, Jive Records dropped her in September 2010.

Currently: Both are working on second studio albums: Iraheta finished out as the opener on Adam Lambert's Glam Nation tour last summer, while Gokey is set to be support on Taylor Swift’s summer tour.
