The storied past of America's favourite singing competition
American Idol, though famous for launching the stratospheric careers of Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson and Lee DeWyze (who?), isn't without its fair share of controversial moments. For a show that hails itself as "family friendly," it's often riddled with voting disputes, shady contestants, nude photo leaks and judging drama, so much so that it's experienced more scandals than it has seasons. And that's a lot. As the Idol returns this week with season 12, we're looking back at the torrid history of this karaoke contest, from its phone hacks to its quarter pounder of beef between new judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj...
like whooo cares !!!! after Adam Lambert losing out to someone else.. i know that show is fixed !!!!
Such a shame, with all the talent in this world, they choose Mariah & Nicki Minaj.....total garbage!
What about Myley Cyrus, Adele, Shania Twain, ?
what a joke this show is getting to be. what is this fued with Miraiah and Nicki. I agree you should not watch. They are taking away from the contestants who the show is supposed to be about. Get over it you silly divas. I want to enjoy the music not watch you fight like two little kids
I stop watching it few years ago .as some one said it is not a Talent show but ,who can make their singer more batter then next ,as it is already said it is all planed , who is the winner . do not kid your self.
