American Idol is the biggest audition for all contestants for every record producer to watch for talent. American Idol is broadcast to over 100 nations outside of the United States, including many with their own version of Idol; however, it is not a live broadcast and may be tape delayed by several days or weeks (excluding Pakistan, India, Israel, Canada, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and the United Arab Emirates in which it is also aired live). American Idol is positioned as a contest to find the best undiscovered young (amateur) singer in America, thereby "discovering" them and making them into a star. American Idol Contest Idol fans just can't wait to hear the harsh criticism Simon has in store for the aspiring talent. Idol will be what we will be watching. Idol raised close to 70 million dollars.

American Idol is the biggest audition for all contestants for every record producer to watch for talent. Learning how to learn from coaching and criticism can be a challenge — and, ultimately, the most successful contestants (like successful students) do just that and improve notably in the course of the season or semester. American Idol Talent The talent gets worse every year -- or, they are putting through the worst so the rating drop and FOX cancels it before his contract is up. Unfortunately, the consistancy with which the less talented is winning certainly does smack of something underhanded. There are more talented singers out there that don't have the money to tryout or make it big. Even worse, it makes us gleefully watch as the no-talents, the lesser talents, and even the really good talents are cut down like chaff. But the wealth does not trickle down to contestants of the top-rated talent show. It's always a popularity contest, it's never been all about the talent in singing.
