Idina Menzel

11. Idina Menzel, Wicked

Another lady whose discography I've deconstructed, Idina is probably the major star of her generation, currently wowing audiences with her dual-mode diva turn in If/Then. "Defying Gravity" (from Wicked) stands pretty much alone as the showtune anthem of the last couple of decades, with Idina's performance as Elphaba reverberating far and wide.
