Canadian Idol and American Idol - Do the Winners Really Make It?
So what happens for the winners after Canadian Idol and American Idol? I have yet to hear any of them singing a huge hit on the radio. I hear their names mentioned once in awhile and see the occasional CD in A&B Sound, but are they like "one hit wonders" or what?
Joni Mitchell, Gordon Lightfoot, Anne Murray, Burton Cummings, Neil Young to name a few famous Canadian singer/songwriters all made it in the music industry on their own merrit and hard work.
I just don't see these "Idol" performers having the staying power or the material.
The only one I see who has really made it is Kelly Clarkson. I think she's got a huge career ahead of her.
Fantasia has made a hit on the red carpets, but until her album comes out who knows how she'll do
Ruben's become a diva of sorts leaving concerts half way through for whatever reason. Clay's the star of AI 2, with Kimberly Locke and Josh Gracin getting a lot of action as well...
as for Canadian Idol I haven't seen squat here in Alaska...
