    Default American Idol 2011

    Season 1 - Kelly ClarksonBorn in April 1982, Kelly Clarkson was the first ever to win the American Idol award in the year 2002. Nearly 50 million people had tuned in to watch this girl take the Idol crown for the first time. The other runner up in that season was Justin Guarinin.

    Season 2 - Ruben StuddardBorn in September 1978, Ruben Studdard was nicknamed 'Velvet Teddy Bear' by the judges. He was the second one to win the American Idol in the year 2003. He defeated Clay Aiken by 134,000 votes. Ruben went ahead to make 4 studio albums after winning this award.

    Season 3 - Fantasia BarrinoHers was the third name to be added to the American Idol winner list after she defeated Diana DeGarmo in the finals. One of the other well known finalists was Jennifer Hudson. 'Fantasia', as she was popularly known, went on to be nominated for 8 Grammy awards and has even acted in some movies. She really deserves to be a winner, not only because of her voice but also because of all the hardships that she had faced before coming to the show.

    Season 4 - Carrie UnderwoodIf anyone's name deserves to be put after Kelly, then it's Carrie. From Oklahoma, Carrie won the award in the year 2005. The person who she defeated was Bo Bice. After winning the award, she went ahead to win 5 Grammy awards.

    Season 5 - Taylor HicksNot once in the entire show was Hicks's in the bottom three zone. Sometimes he wrote (and he still does) write his own songs. In this season he had defeated Katharine McPhee to win this award. Later on he also went ahead to release his two albums.

    Season 6 - Jordin SparksBorn in December 1989, Jordin became the 6th American Idol winner in the year 2007. She won with a new record of 74 million votes. After winning the award, she even has been on tours with Alicia Keys and Jesse McCartney. On the final day, she had defeated Blake Lewis.

    Season 7 - David CookThe next name to be added to the American Idol winners list was that of David Cook. He had defeated an equally worthy contestant, David Archuleta. After the award, Cook had also been on The Declaration tour. He had come to the show and had won it, despite several problems in his personal life.

    Season 8 - Kris Allen
    After defeating Adam Lambert, Kris became the 8th winner of the American Idol. Not just singing, Kris is also interested in paying the viola.

    Season 9 - Lee DeWyzeThe recent winner of this show is Lee DeWyze, who won it in 2010. He defeated Crystal Bowersox. After winning the Idol he never had to look back. He had sung the national anthem for the Games 2 of the 2010 NBA Finals in June.



    From my point of view, Carrie Underwood has ruled as far as sales etc...



    OK, now 2011 American Idol is rolling. We got Mr. Tyler, JAYLO and Randy...,,,,,,,,

    Frankly,I HATE it when Tyler goes to that shitty falsetto and does that horrible vibrato. I"ve seen Aerosmith live 3 times. He sucked 2 out of 3 times.

    Bottom line is that Tyler's Falsettto is getting old

    This thread shouldn't be in the music forum. Karaoke forum if we had one....non-music seems appropriate.

    Hmm..Amercian Idol has a lot hacky stuff but honestly the only Karaoke on the show that I've seen was from the guest stars
    Frankly, I did a search to dig up the old Idol thread not sure even where that one was posted

    Ok, I watch it every year but yeah the worst of it is the stupid auditions where they dig up these idiots for so called "intertainment"

    I've become a little more accepting of "Idol" in recent years - I've heard a lot worse contemporary music on the radio that didn't go through the "Idol" process. And it's become good "event" television - kind of standing in for (but no match for) stuff like "Ed Sullivan".

    Maybe in the last show Ed and Al could show up and do a number with Randy and Steven.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    She can't sing, but I'm sure she would do a fine job working a stripper pole.

    As Randy would say, everyone of these guys is "uber" talented. Tonight they brought all kinds of genres, and I loved them all. Tough, talented, and entertaining season.

    You know, as soon as I heard "movies", I started wondering if Durbin was going to do Everybody Wants Some from the Cusack movie. Then I thought "Heavy Metal" - then I thought naahh, what are the chances?

    Hunh. What a useless thing to predict, LOL.

    I was pretty fookin fired up to see Zakk out there.

    I was saying to myself "awwww no, he's gonna fuck up Heavy Metal" Then I thought "but it's Heavy Metal, how could he possibly make it worse?" Then Zakk came out and it was all ok. Durbin did a good job. I'm sure Sam dug it too.

    That surprised the hell out of me.

    Zakk rules

    That Haley chick has got to go. She butchered Blondie and is fake looking when she moves around. Worst of the night, IMO....
