No Casey will not be a superstar selling out Madison Square Garden.

I Highly doubt Pia will either.

Adam Lambert and David Cook had a few great songs but I wonder if that is it for them.

Kathleen Mcphee (sp?) reminds me of Pia. Everyone was upset when Mcphee lost Idol she went on to record some songs but has not done much since.

Idols seem to get gigs and broadway plays but to become the next music mega superstar touring the country and selling out venues most likely will not happen.

Carrie Underwood I think would be the biggest star that came out of Idol.


How about that Justin Bieber never did Idol yet at age 16 is a superstar. So many people have Bieber Fever...

I think the biggest success stories are Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Chris Daughtry, and Jennifer Hudson (in that order).

Adam Lambert will soon be releasing a song in Hebrew .If you go to you tube you can listen to him singing the song .
Kathleen McPhee will soon be featured in a movie .It should be out later this year.
In my opinion Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood will have the best careers among the winners .
Jackie Tohn who was in the top 24 on last years show is appearing in concert all over the world and has released 3 CD's .
Pia Toscano was offered a contract by both Warner Bros and 19 but Nigel Lythgoe blocked it . Once the show and tour is over Pia will sign and have a career that can last 50 years .

None of the above mentioned are superstars other then maybe Carrie and Kelly.

Yes they have careers and won't be on the unemployment line but may never be superstars.

I heard about Mcphee geting a role in a movie.

I did not know who Jackie Tohn was and I watched every idol. I forgot all about her. She is performing at Barre in LA. She is not a headliner she shares the show with other singers. Sounds like the Barre is not a big venue. Tickets are only 10 bucks or $11.40 with tax.

Seems like past idols have careers in small venues, broadway, maybe a movie role.

It's not easy to become a big name superstar no matter how talented you are.

The top money making concerts in 2010 were.....Bon Jovi, AC/DC, U2 and Lady Gaga. These mega superstars are selling out large venues all over the world and people are willing to pay big bucks for a ticket.

Nobody mentioned one of my favorites, Kelly Pickler. I REALLY like her for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that she has gone to the middle East a number of times to entertain our troops.

I read today that Jacob Lusk was driving with a suspended license and failed to show up in court .He was subsequently arrested at his residence and sentenced to 6 months probation .However ,his lawyer was able to work out a deal in which the probation time would be after the AI season.

I still believe that Adam Lambert will have a nice career .Constantine Maroulis ,a non winner has been doing well as has Oscar recipient Jennifer Hudson .

Didn't Constantine have a part on General Hospital?

I can see him as a soap actor!



I like Kelli Pickler! There is something fun and quirky about her. I don't think she has a great voice - but with the right songs she can have many hits!

I'm not sure if Constantine was on GH . I saw a production of The Fantastiks in 2007 and an AI person was the lead male actor .

I thought Lauren was amazing!

As much as I hate Scotty. He did a great job AND I've loved every duet he's sung with Lauren.

Jacob needs to be transported back to the 70s.

As much I as I like James, I didn't like him last night. I loved the beginning, and then it became too pop-y or charaoke for me. HE should have kept the mellow unplugged thing going and used a spanish guitar instead.

I saw bottom two are Haley and Jacob. Please America, send Jacob home.

Carole King went to high school with my sister-in-law .I've followed her career for 50 years .Considering all the songs she has written ,in my opinion all 6 AI hopefuls picked wrong songs .

I thought James was the best on last nights show.

In my opinion Casey is a better singer than Scotty but the latter gets the feenybopper vote.

Henry i totally agree with you, with all the amazing Carole Kings songs available to them, i didn't understand why they chose the ones they did. I thought that Scottys version of"Youv'e Got a Friend" was beautiful, it was quiet, understated and touching.

Yep James does have funny looking ears....But who does not like a good Rocker? And he can sing and put on a great show.

It was time for Casey to go too. Hailey will miss her boyfriend not being on the show anymore.

Hailey should of did what Pia did....Go down the hall to the DWTS studio and grab a hot looking dancer as a boyfriend.
Pia and Mark Ballas do make a cute couple. :-D

Scotty, Jacob, Lauren and Hailey are all going down....James is going to win this thing....

Pia dumped her BF of 4 years .In an interview he said they planned on getting engaged after AI .

In my opinion there was only ONE reason why Adam Lambert did not win last year and its the same reason why Casey would not win this year ,why Jacob has no chance this year and why Haley will not win this year .

We all realize that the best singers never win on AI with the exception of Carrie Underwood.
