Amy Christina Adams (born July 25, 1979) is an American singer best known as the tenth-place finalist on the third season of the television series American Idol.
Adams was born in
Kansas City, Kansas and presently lives in Bakersfield, California and works in Las Vegas, Nevada as a singer for the Wynn Casino production Le Reve- The Dream. Adams auditioned for American Idol in Atlanta, Georgia and was a member of the third group of semifinalists. After a successful week of singing the Dixie Chicks' " Sin Wagon", on March 31, 2004 Adams became the third of the twelve finalists to be voted off the show, after singing " Dancing in the Street". She then became the first Idol contestant not to make it to the final five who appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Idol judge Simon Cowell had previously said on the show that Adams reminded him of Leno, likely a combined reference to her large chin and sense of humor. She is also the third contestant with pink/red hair to have made the finals.

Adams has one son, Harrison Ryan, who was born in May 2005.
