Will a former federal employee become the next American Idol? Chikezie Eze, who's among the finalists in this season's competition, is a former Transportation Security Administration screener at Los Angeles International Airport.

TSA reports that Raul Matute, Chikezie's former boss, says he was "a fun guy to have on staff." TSA notes that "during breaks or on his way to work in the bus, Chikezie would sing along with his iPod for everyone to enjoy."
