Nobody talks much about Nadia Turner’s time on “Idol,” mostly because she arrived about three years too early. But her mix of R&B vocals and genre-blending instincts (she was always a rocker at heart) would have been a perfect fit in the post-Adam Lambert era.

Nadia is a very talented and versatile artist. Her well known rendition of “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me” by Dusty Springfield can be found on “Showstoppers” the American Idol 4th Season CD which went GOLD, selling over 500,000 copies. Nadia Turner recently guest co-host on “The View” with Barbara Walters and Rosie O’Donnell.
Anyone familiar with the US TV series American Idol will know Nadia Turner, the former beauty queen from St Eustatius whose blistering renditions, big hair, and midriff-baring tank-tops wooed viewers and took her into the final round of eight. A favourite across North America and the Caribbean, she’s generated weblogs in her honour, rallied newspapers to her side, and even impressed the cantankerous judge Simon Cowell, who told her, “in a competition full of hamburgers, you are a steak.”

Now it’s my favorite from that season, Nadia Turner. She’s much more analytical, very thoughtful. I loved her fresh look, her unique sound, her sexy persona. I loved her take on “Try a Little Tenderness” and “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me.”
