American Idol Contestants - Instant Stardom and Off
Everyone running around talking about every season of American Idol as if it was the greatest experience that ever existed in the world. But if you have been watching the show for a while, you are well aware that there are 6 seasons even before the latest. This leaves 7 seasons, potential idol idols who are rejected, wondering all over the world trying to make their own lives. While some contestants had done amazing things with their careers, even more were entering the gap.
The first season is the beginning of something big. There aren't only two hosts, remember Brian Dunkleman? Don't feel bad, most people don't know who he is or that he is involved. But there are also contestants like Justin Guarini, Kelly Clarkson, and even Tamyra Gray to name a few of these are extraordinary seasons. The overall excitement increased but where did the contestants go? Kelly Clarkson certainly emerged as a winner and is still active in the music industry. Justin Guarini has made several television appearances, and even released several albums but his commercial success is very limited. Tamyra Gray has found the date of the greatest success on television appearing at several different shows. He also recently found success at the "Rent." Broadway show.
The second season began with an explosion, and brought along former Marine Josh Gracin who had won the heart of country music lover Carmen Rasmusen who also released a country music album and even brought along the amazing Kimberly Locke, Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard. With the talent that emerged from this season, it is undeniable that this performance went well. Ruben then recorded several albums, while Clay Aiken had found much success with both albums and even on Broadway. Others like Carmen, Josh and Kimberly did not follow, but still received attention after their time on the show.
The third season was found by contestants such as Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia Barrino and William Hung who were notoriously cruel who while not finalists actually lived in the hearts of all true fans for what should not be done at the audition. Additional assets were also found at Diana DeGarmo. From the third season, it was rather clear that it was rather difficult to find lasting talent. Jennifer Hudson has so far emerged as the most successful contestant this season, and after being booted in 7th place she has been a star at Dreamgirls with Jamie Foxx and Beyonce Knowles and even won an Academy Award for her performance. Meanwhile Fantasia has won the main headline for her weird antics, failure to appear for Broadway shows and less than the commercial success of stars.
The fourth season gave rise to all the naughty rock boys, along with Constantine Maroulis and even Bo Bice. By bringing the two rockers on stage, it is a shift to a different style of music, and both contestants are credited with season five contestants who inspired Chris Daughtry to try. Winning the season is Carrie Underwood, who has been a huge success and to date the winner of the most successful American Idol. The remaining contestants from that year have managed to slip back into the background with only occasional news stories, such as Vonzell Solomon, the third place contestant who was arrested for a gun at the airport.
