I read through the latest remarks left by some of my friends on my homepage in Facebook yesterday and someone commented he was "Watching David Foster and Friends".
I moved on, giving it no second thought. But this morning, the thought came into my mind again and I decided to Youtube search it.
I saw Michael Buble, then I moved on to the one with Michael Johns. You remember him? American Idol Season 7, Australian guy? He was eliminated quite early but seems to have gone on to greater success than some other seasons' winners (like Season 5!!).
So, I decided to do a little recap...
2002 - Kelly Clarkson (Justin Guarini runner up).
2003 - Reben Studdard (Clay Aiken runner up).
2004 - Fantasia Barrino (Diana DeGarmo runner up).
2005 - Carrie Underwood (BoBice runner up).
2006 - Taylor Hicks (Katherine McPhee runner up).
2007 - Jordin Sparks (Blake Lewis runner up).
2008 - David Cook (David Archuleta runner up).
Some runner ups I really don't even remember how they looked or sang!
Some from the some season(s) who America missed/messed up!
2004 - Jennifer Hudson
2006 - Chris Daughtry
2007 - Melinda Doolittle
I think I loved the 2008 lineup the best. I enjoyed Michael Johns, Carly Smithson, Brooke White (she was pure goodness), even Jason Castro, Kristy Lee Cook and Syesha Mercado.
Some still familiar names from 2006 like Kellie Pickler (I saw her sing on TV in one programme, if only I could remember which one), Elliott Yamin and Bucky Corington.
Thankfully, the rainbow seldom ends there, there are song wrtiers and music producers that do 'cash in' on the talent they see.
And then there are some who make it on their own!
I seem to be a little lost with the 2009 season. Maybe I am still high on the 2 Davids....
So, who do you think will be 2009's winner?
By the way, the David Foster and friends concert is really good! May even get the DVD.
