Naima Adedapo's Locked Dreads Make Her An Exotic StandOut On American Idol

A beautiful locked Naima Adedapo appeared to be headed out the door on American Idol, Season 10, until literally the last few minutes of the show.

Although Jennifer Lopez called the delighted Wisconsin contestant "an exotic flower in a rose garden" after she sang Porgy and Bess "Summertime", Randy was less complimentary and told her fell short. Randy, who has become the judge who tells it like it really is (bless you Randy) told the tall and model like contestant she failed to compare to Fantasia's version.

After the Top Ten were revealed the judges were able to ask six of the rejected contestants to sing one last time.  Ultimately the judges selected three wild cards, Naima Adedapo, Stefano Langone and Ashton Jones.  Naima Adedapo seemed shocked, but also relieved, to be going on to another competition.  The big question is whether she will be able to last or not?

In past seasons wild cards have gone far but today's American Idol is a new show with kinder, gentler judges.

Naima definitely has an advantage of sorts.  While her voice disappointed Randy Jackson, her fashion choices are very exotic and her long well-formed locked coils, which appear to have been formed on natural curls, are well coiffed.  She may really speak to the audience who ultimately make or break the finalists with their voting.  Besides her amazing hair, fashion and accessory choices. Naima has time on her side to pick better songs and fine tune her act.

Meanwhile hopefully we will have enough time to enjoy viewing her amazing hairstyle which she's obviously been cultivating for some time.

The big question is how will the Idol fashion squad change her hair and look if she makes it to the end of the Idol challenge.  Whatever they decide to do, I hope Naima hangs on to her gorgeous locks.
