2012 ‘American Idol’ Season to Start in January

It’s that time again, country fans! The 2012 season of ‘American Idol’ will kick off this January. It’ll be the show’s 11th season and let’s hope that this season follows the same trajectory as the last, when the final two contestants were country artists! Will Scotty McCreery‘s heir apparent make it to the top? Will we find our next Lauren Alaina? It’s certainly an exciting prospect, since country music dominated the show last season. That trend could very well continue into 2012.

Who Will The Real Idol Winner Be? Scotty McCreery Or Lauren Alaina?

Wait didn't we already decide who that was? Well for the TV show portion of American Idol we did but now comes the real battle. In case you haven't figured it out, American Idol is a months long commercial to sell records and music to the American music buying public. You thought it was a singing competition? Really? The people behind American Idol are in the business of selling records and making money and it doesn't matter who wins the competition, Taylor Hicks and  Lee DeWyze ring a bell? The Idol machine is going to put money and material in front of the person they think can bring the most return on their investment. That being said, Who will the real Idol winner be?

The Cost Of Competing On American Idol

I have to admit, "American Idol" is an on/off obsession with me. After  Acadiana's own Jacee Badeaux left this year, I didn't watch with as much enthusiasm. But they always seem to come up with some potential country music superstars, so I'll definatly be glued to the set during the finale.
