So far: All of the winners (For at least some amount of time, although some have faded after their brief success.) and a few runner-ups, and a few other contestants that didn't even make it to the top 2. All of them, though, are pretty good. American Idol people are probably the most talented you'll find.. I don't know all of them, but I'll list some: Carrie Underwood, Chris Daughtry, Kelly Clarkston, Jordin Sparks, Clay Aiken, David Cook, David Archuleta, and Kellie Pickler.. Just note that not ALL of them are that successful CURRENTLY, but at some time they did have alot of fame. However, some others DO have that currently.. Carrie Underwood, Chris Daughtry, Jordin Sparks, David Cook, David Archuleta, and Kellie Pickler just as some examples of those who are still popular NOW.. It doesn't seem like any of them will go soon.

What do the American Idol contestants get for compensation?

Big bucks await 'Idol' contestants Winners have made at least $1 million in the first year after being on the top-rated show; finalists also have fared well. By EDWARD WYATT, New York Times It's doubtful that any of the remaining contestants on "American Idol" hope to be playing the Teen Angel in a touring production of "Grease" in Pittsburgh three years from now. But that's what Taylor Hicks, the 2006 "American Idol" winner, is doing. And it shows that winning the nation's most popular talent competition is no guarantee of superstardom. Easing that potential pain are the substantial financial rewards promised to winners of "American Idol," regardless of how many records they sell once the show ends. In the year since he stood under a confetti shower in the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, Kris Allen, last year's winner, has earned at least $650,000 from "American Idol," according to contracts that last season's contestants signed with the show's producers during the competition. That amount reflects the minimum a winner would earn. Including performance fees and merchandising royalties from the "American Idol" tour, as well as other opportunities, winners have never failed to earn less than $1 million in the year or so after the contest, people close to the show say. It is not just the winner who cashes in; finalists who reach the Top 5 this season are likely to earn close to $100,000 from the show -- and three to four times that if the "Idol" producers sign them to a record deal. The Top 12 contestants are guaranteed several thousand dollars for their efforts. That is before accounting for the Top 10 finalists' earnings for appearing in the summer's "Idol" tour. These details emerged from copies of last year's contracts filed in state court in Los Angeles under laws requiring court approval of entertainment industry deals with minors.

Is 'American Idol' a fair contest?

I think Scotty won fair and square if that's what you're asking. Take away all the obsessive teenage girls and still he has the most talent, along with Lauren Alaina, love her too. (this is relevant wait till the end of what you're about to read to judge it) I was sitting at the table eating dinner as my mom asked my little brother "Do you still wanna go to GameStop?" He, being an eleven year old boy replied, "Yes." She then said, "Okay, how much do you love me?" After thinking a quick second, he responded, "I love you this big." Just a little piece of info I hoped would serve as proof that it isn't only teenage girls that like Scotty. They shed that light on him for publicity. He's no different from Josh Turner or Rodney Atkins or Brad Paisley. He's an ordinary country singer. The only difference is that he's seventeen. My definitely straight fifteen year old guy friend even wanted Scotty to win. Because he's a fan of country.

What branch of government determines voter eligibility and election rules?

The eligibility of an individual for voting is set out in the constitution and also regulated at state level. The constitution states that suffrage cannot be denied on grounds of race or color, sex or age for citizens eighteen years or older. Beyond these basic qualifications, it is the responsibility of state legislatures to regulate voter eligibility. Some states bar convicted criminals, especially felons, from voting for a fixed period of time or indefinitely. The number of American adults who are currently or permanently ineligible to vote due to felony convictions is estimated to be 5.3 million. [1] Some states also have legacy constitutional statements barring the "insane" or "idiots" from voting; such references are generally considered obsolete and are being considered for review or removal where they appear.

What are the rules of the sex contest?

The sex contest has many rules to it. It is a complex contest that has been passed down from multiple generations. The rules are you can enter once you start beginning in sexual activity. For countries like Korea and China and other countries that have many restrictions involving sexual activity, the contest will begin when you turn 18. The contest begins when you are born. A tiny MEC (Micro Erection Chip) is places inside your urethra when you are born. This chip is designed to see when you have your first sexual encounter with a girl (or a boy in the GSC or the gay sex contest). This will send an official registration to the Sex Contest Association (SCA) to let them know that you are entered. You will receive points for each sexual act you perform. The point system follows as, Sex=10 points Blow Job =5 Hand job=3 Boob touch=5 Fingering the vagina=7 Anal sex=7 You will be receiving points for every sexual act you commit and will be placed in rankings depending on your age. So if you are in 8th grade and have sex 4 times and get 3 blow jobs, you will be at 55 points. You will be penalized for the performance of sexual activity on girls who are unattractive. You also may not perform any form of rape on a girl to receive points. The game is no longer active once you become married. If you do have a divorce you will have to reregister with the SCA.
