    Season 7 "American Idol" Contestant Joanne Borgella Dies - She was just 32

    Season 7 American Idol contestant Joanne Borgella, who competed on the show in 2008, passed away this weekend. She was just 32. She died of a rare form of cancer. So tragic.

    Borgella was the first winner of Mo'Nique's Fat Chance under the "Miss F.A.T." moniker back in 2005. She also made it to the Top 12 on her Idol season.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

    Do you still watch American Idol?
