Diandra Danielle Flores (born 12 August 1994),[1] better known by her stage name Diandra, is a Finnish pop singer who rose to fame as the winner of the sixth season of the Finnish singing competition Idols in 2012.[2] She is the youngest winner of Finland's Idols. Her debut album Outta My Head was released in July 2012.

Career[edit]

In Autumn 2004, when she was just 10, Diandra won Staraoke, a Finnish children singing competition.[3] Her father is from Chile and her mother from Finland.[4] She made a TV comeback in Idols 2012. Immediately after winning Idols, Diandra signed a recording contract with Universal Music and released her debut single "Onko Marsissa lunta?" followed by "Outta My Head". Her debut album Outta My Head was released on 5 July 2012, only two months after she won Idols. She was the second woman to win Idols after Hanna Pakarinen. She performed the English-language song "Light Up the Ice" as the theme music to the 2017 World Figure Skating Championships.
