Well, golly. Nick Fradiani is our new “American Idol.” A year from now, will we even remember his name?
Why do so many “American Idol” winners remain losers? That’s kind of a mean question isn’t it? I really don’t mean it to be as I’m not a mean person, but at least it’s an honest question.
Let me back off a little bit as I’m probably not the one who should be asking the question. I make no effort at all to keep up on current music or what is played on the radio or any of that. Having said this, I went online and did a Google search of all the “American Idol” winners.
I’m thinking only three of them have had any kind of long term success—Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Taylor Hicks. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.
I watched season 9 of “American Idol” back in 2010. I kind of got interested in it. I’m not sure why—please just consider it a bad year for me.
The winner in 2010 was Lee Dewyze and he’s a pretty good singer. Have we heard from him since? No. Dewyze has not released an original album since he won. He has gone nowhere.
It has been announced that next season will be the last for “American Idol” and it’s probably beyond time for that to happen.
Sorry. There I go being mean again.
