What's up with the Idols?


This fall, it's gonna rain American Idol alumnis. It seems easier for a finalist to get signed now. Almost everyone in the top 6 gets a record deal. Well, almost, Elliott Yamin remains unsigned. But the previous idol champs are coming back too. Here's the list of their album release date:

Mario Vasquez: September 12 (guess nobody remembers this dude)
Ruben Studdard, Clay Aiken: September 19
Fantasia: October 17
Taylor Hicks, Katharine McPhee, and Kellie Pickler: November 14
Chris Daughtry: Someday in November

Even losers like Scott Stavol, Nikko Smith and eeww, Ace Young, are in the studio making crap. The only cds I want to check out are Taylor's debut and Fantasia's sophomore album. She proves that it doesn't matter if you can't read, as long as you can sing your butt off. She's got an impressive guest list: Kanye West, Ne-Yo, Aretha Franklin and even more. The others, I couldn't care less. I might take a quick listen at Kat's cd. Might.
Poor Katherine. Her disc will probably flop. She doesn't have a bright future ahead, since her single only debuted at 12 on Billboard Top 100. One year later, she will be referred to as 'That Bulimia/ Scientologist Girl From AI'. Here's my own conspiracy theory: She's absent from the tour not because she's sick! She could be abducted by TomKat to sing 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' to their 'alien' baby Suri. Now that's creepy.

In related news, Beauty N' The Beat just posted a new Ruben song called 'Change Me'. Click here if you want to check it out.
