Syesha Mercado is a Regis & Kelly Idol
3rd place American Idol contestant Syesha Mercado greets her fans in New York City after leaving Live with Regis and Kelly on Thursday.
The AI Davids (Cook and Archuleta) have also been making the morning/talk show rounds, appearing on the Today show on Thursday as well.
If Syesha looked comfortable in front of the camera, it’s because she was a contestant on the short-lived ABC reality show, The One: Making a Music Star. After airing for four episodes, however, the show was pulled. R&B singer Louie Bello, who also was on The One, mentioned that Syesha was cut before a winner was crowned.
