9. Elise Testone, season 11
Elise Testone was a kid-friendly music instructor who could seriously, seriously rock. She launched into "Whole Lotta Love" with a wild smile on her face. She hurtled through "It's a Man's, Man's, Man's World." She matched Freddie Mercury's grandeur on "I Want It All." She even tossed in some Jimi Hendrix for us. Testone was not just one of the most talented rockers in the show's history; she also seemed to know the most about pop/rock history.
