Back in 2010, just before Christmas, then Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, known as “America’s Toughest Sheriff,” held an American Idol–style singing contest in his jail. The inmate who won would get the treat of a big Christmas dinner of turkey, mashed potatoes, and cookies.

The judges for the contest were reportedly Arpaio, a man in an Elvis costume, and someone dressed as Santa Claus.

Arias, who was not well-known at the time, won first place in the contest, and the video of her triumphant performance was broadcast throughout the jail’s televisions on Christmas day.

Arias must have been grateful to have won a decent meal for one day, as Arpaio, who served as sheriff from 1993 to 2016, was known for serving restrictive and disgusting food in his jail.

Bizarrely, you can also see Arias singing “O Holy Night” in a brief clip from video taken from her interrogation room in the below video. Maybe it’s the only song she learned to sing?

    She sings as well as she kills!

  • I study wrongful convictions. There were many errors during her trial. There is no proof her testimony was false in any material way. Her defense was ineffective, the scene when examined closely shows she acted in self-defense.

      She killed a naked guy in the shower. Hope she hangs.

  • Jodi knows many songs, there is a recording of her singing the national anthem, see the videos at the Facebook page “Jodi Arias Support”. In addition she was wrongly convicted, no proof her testimony was false, scene evidence shows she acted in self-defense. Another wrongful conviction ( I study them ).

      I do not mean to be rude or disrespectful. I am confounded by your comments. Clearly, you are thinking with the wrong head. Spend your time doing something to prevent these kinda of crimes from happening in the first place.

  • Colleen

    I will watch to see the guilty verdict read and the confirmation from the jury.
    And the JSS sentencing her to natural life without parole for using at least 2 deadly weapons in the murder of Travis.
