Amber Riley

Amber Riley stars on Glee as Mercedes Jones. This actress can seriously, seriously carry a tune!

The Fox hit is her first starring role in movies or on television. When she was 17, Amber actually auditioned for American Idol, but didn't advance.

Producers may have made a mistake, but we're very glad they did. She's perfect for Glee.

Glee Quotes

You know, the New York Times said, um, half the increase in support of gay marriage is due to generational turnover. That's what smart people call 'crazy, uptight bitches dying.' You guys lost, okay? And honestly the rest of us are just going about our business being normal and waiting for you not to be around, and not because you can stop us from getting married, but because you're kind of annoying.

I just want somebody to love me.
