The search for America’s superstar began in the year 2002 and keeps getting better with each passing year. The show has seen immense talent that only seems to grow with every progressive season.
Created by Simon Fuller and airing on Fox, this show garners prime time viewership and is probably one of the most popular reality TV shows in history. Glamor, high voltage drama, humor, disappointment, joy, excitement, and of course, some truly astounding music; that’s what this show has been and is still about. In this article, we’ll give you a brief look ar all the young and not so young winners of this coveted title, along with a little bit of their background history, their stay on Idol and their journey therefrom.
“You are going to Hollywood”, yes it was with this same sentence that Paula, Simon and Randy might have invited many a face to compete for the title of America’s best singer, but it was only 10 special people who have made it so far! Although we keep on hearing the lame “everyone’s a winner” and “winning doesn’t matter” bits at any competition, a winner remains to be the only one to grab the winning trophy (not to mention the hefty prize amount and coveted music contracts) and has the biggest smile on his face as he/she waves to the group of audience and supporters.
