How She’s Done: Solid (2003’s Thankful), then massive (2004’s Breakaway), then a decline (2007’s very dark My December), before landing somewhere in the middle (2009’s All I Ever Wanted). She’s sold more singles than any other contestant.
What’s Next: The Grammy winner’s fifth album is expected this year.
