Diana DeGarmo, who is now 18 years old, rang in the New Year by entertaining American troops across the globe. The American Idol runner-up's schedule had her performing for troops in seven countries, in seven days. Tonight is her final performance, in Germany. She's also been to Qatar, Afghanistan, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, and Iraq, where she spent the night in one of Saddam's many palaces. She's performing with comedian Reggie McFadden and country singer Michael Peterson as part of the USO Tour. Her part of the show includes pulling troops up on stage to compete in an impromptu-style dance contest and she wraps up each performance by singing America the Beautiful.
