I have yet to see an actual idol come from this show. All the early winners made an album or two, were popular for a while, and then just faded away. Where is Ruben? How about Fantasia? And I am not going to idolize Adam Lambert (who didn't even win). He looks like a circus freak. By this time next year he will be forgotten like last seasons lip gloss. Yes, the show is popular, but the only people who know who the winners are and what they are doing are watching the show. Shouldn't America's Idol be just a tad more popular. I do have faith in Carrie Underwood. I hope she doesn't let me down. So what makes an idol and do you think these people make the cut? Or do you think the show is not living up to it's promise of making American Idols?Answer Question

americansugar, yeah, it's fair that they get a chance. I just find it a bit off that some of the losers are doing better than the winners. If the winners didn't want to do this or that then they could have done something else. If they were really that good according to producers other than Simon, record producers would be chasing after them and giving into their every want in the name of the dollar. If the Stones decided today that they needed a new producer they would have 200 lined up before the press release was out. They have been around for decades. They will be making records in their death beds and still sell out stadiums. Those are Idols. Ruben, not so much. lol I just don't see the next Elvis or Madonna coming from this show, winner or not.
