Default American idol

well its that time of year again. my wife has to watch the positively worst show ever. maybe i have no taste at all, but American idol is one step below crap. have you ever noticed the so called winners except for one, never are able to have a continuing career. i already am battling a terrible cold, now nausea is creeping in from the tv in the living area. but i will survive as i do every year and we will have another no name winner that we will have to endure. well that is all for my tv critique for this year , lol

You are a little out of touch there, idol has at least nine of the winners who have won awards and at least three are touring to sold out venues, Here are a few:

American Music Awards(AMA) Billboard Music Awards(BMA)

Kelly Clarkson

(Season 1, Winner) 4(AMA) 12(BMA) 2(Grammy)
2006 Best Female Pop Vocal
2006 Best Pop Vocal Album

Clay Aiken
(Season 2, Runner-Up) 1(AMA) 3(BMA) 0

Fantasia Barrino
(Season 3, Winner) 0 3(BMA) 0

Carrie Underwood
(Season 4, Winner) 5(AMA) 14(BMA) 3(GRAMMY)
2008 Best Female Country Vocal
2007 Best New Artist
2007 Best Female Country Vocal

Chris Daughtry
(Season 5, 4th Place) 4(AMA) 6(BMA) 0
Best new Group

Jordin Sparks
(Season 6, Winner) 1(AMA) 0 0


Jenifer Hudson another non winner - 1 Oscar win for Dream Girls

My kids listen to and for crazy over Chris Daughtry whose band just won "best new group" in 2008.

Carrie Underwood is the top selling money making country singer right now

It goes on and on and even one contestant that did not even win idol won an Oscar, Jennifer Hudson.

I have 6 kids and the kids are the ones listening and the reason I know these groups, but far more than one Idol has made it and made it big.

after writing my post, i got to thinking who would have something good to say about "idol" you came to mind immediately. as i said the only one that has had a continuing career is carrie underwood, also i think there was one loser that has had a pretty continuing career.

Nick , i know kids like it, im just not a kid anymore.

being "out of touch" is great if that means i dont have to listen to that show.

Hey Levon, Being in California, I get the joy of ticking off my wife. When the season gets to the part where the viewers vote, I go on the internet about 7:05 PM (pst), then announce who got voted off. Nearly 2 hours before it starts here.

Why would I come to mind? That is weird no one here knows me outside of woodworking and no idea what music I like. the music I like would not go over big here and definitely would never be played on American Idol.

American Idol is for a bunch of kids. Why would anyone have anything bad to say about a bunch of kids trying to make it? It is better than a lot of the other crap with all the blood and guts and some of these kids, whether famous or not are fantastic and talented.

Your wife is not alone I think 23 million watched last week.

HI levon

I will need to 2nd that, but my BOSS in charge of the TV from 5:00 to 12:00 I feel so sorry for many of them on the show if they do win it's like a shooting star for most I think..it a bright light for just a little bit and then it's all over

And so many are just plane weird people ,then next time you will see them they will be on the Jerry Springer show..looking for the spot light one more time,,,, LOL LOL .

i agree bobj. i do feel sorry for them especially when simon gets through with them. its fine if they want to try, but i think many of them would be better served to concentrate on a good education. the chances of so called "making it big" are so small, but remind me of the lottery. they see it and want it so bad.
