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.
