American Idol finalist Diana DeGarmo has promised to buy her mother a new car and a beach house if she wins the talent contest on Wednesday night (26MAY04).

It's not the first time the teenage wannabe pop star has been in the finals of a major competition - she was also a finalist on American TV's AMERICA'S MOST TALENTED KID and won beauty pageant MISS GEORGIA PEACH last year (03).

Her competition in Wednesday's American Idol showdown will be Fantasia BARRINO.
