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? Scotty McCreery or Lauren Alaina.

11 Star Making Moments From American Idol [Video]

American Idol, love it or hate it, has really been a great vehicle for some amazing talent to be shoved into the spotlight of the American consciousness. Adam Lambert is not one of my personal favorites but I do admire his showmanship. Do you remember when Kelly Clarkson set the Idol-nation on its ear with You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman? Many of the most gripping and memorable Idol performances have not come from the contest winners, we have 11 star making moments from American Idol for you to see.

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. It's a great excuse to have a party, and celebrate that elusive American Dream. I was pretty shocked, however, to see what the actual dollar numbers are for contestants- rags to riches might be the understatement of the year!

Idol Loves Country! Liberal Media Does Not

So what's a DJ like me doing going all political and using American Idol as a platform? In the words of Howard Cosell, I am calling it like I see it. For some reason the blogosphere doesn't think American Idol should be about singing talent, making music stars and God forbid singing Country Music! They seem to think it is a platform for gender bending freaks with marginal talent or a place where a few tattoos and an outlandish costume are enough to pay the freight. America spoke last night, Idol loves country, the liberal media does not.

Jacee Badeaux Not The Only Idol Snub

I must be truthful my personal involvement with TV's American Idol ended the moment Kellie Pickler was eliminated. Alright I did watch when Jacee Badeaux was on but when he was moved on so did I. I have found the show to be a great example of  just how transparent and fake the music business can be. Idol has provided for some really cruel moments in the past but the treatment of a former Idol contestant might be the coldest cut of all.
