American Idol Success Stories
Duration: June 1 - August 31, 2020


Since the series premiered in 2002, American Idol has captivated audiences with its hilariously bad auditions, nail-biting finales, epic performances, and heartwarming stories. Many fans choose their favorite singers at the beginning and root for them to claim the prize — usually a sizeable sum of cash and a recording contract. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always guarantee a lifetime of fame and fortune. Sometimes the losers fare better than the winners.

1. Carrie Underwood
No surprise here. After winning season four of American Idol, Carrie Underwood catapulted up the charts. Underwood was the first woman to release four country music albums that soared to number one.
So far she’s won seven Grammys, 11 Billboard Music Awards, 13 American Music Awards, and tons more accolades.
Obviously, she’s also sold extremely well also — 65 million records worldwide.
The “Blown Away” singer has an impressive net worth of $85 million. Considering she likely pulls in over $500,000 per show, that’s not surprising in the least. Forbes considers her the most successful American Idol star — a claim that’s hard to dispute.
🎤 Read a book set in Oklahoma OR with a 6 and 5 in the IBSN# OR with a MC who is a singer.

2. Kelly Clarkson
The winner of the first season of American Idol is also one of the most successful. Her debut single was a slow burn — it debuted at 60 on the top 100, before quickly ascending to number one in the coming weeks. It was the biggest jump up the Billboard charts in history, breaking a record set by The Beatles 38 years prior.
She took a bold risk on her second album, distancing herself from her American Idol image by using a harder-edged, rock and roll sound and hiring a new talent manager. The strategy seems to have paid off, the album was her most successful to date and features some of her most recognizable songs like “Because of You,” “Behind These Hazel Eyes,” and “Since You’ve Been Gone.”
Clarkson has a net worth of $28 million — but it’s not all from album sales and tour revenue. She’s also a successful children’s author, actress, and a coach on The Voice.
🎤 Read a book set in Texas OR with a 1 in the IBSN# OR with a character that is an author.

3. Adam Lambert
Lambert losing to Kris Allen might be the biggest upset in the history of American Idol. Fans were shocked when it was announced that Lambert wouldn’t be claiming first prize. If there was any silver lining, it was that fans knew he was destined for stardom.
Of course, they were right. Lambert’s trajectory is nearly unparalleled. His first album For Your Entertainment went platinum in three different countries. In 2012, he became the first openly gay singer to top the US Billboard Top 200 with the release of his sophomore album Trespassing.
Lambert’s net worth is estimated to be around $20 million.
🎤 Read a book set in Indiana OR with a 3 in the IBSN# OR with a gay character.

4. Jennifer Hudson
Despite placing seventh on season three of American Idol, Hudson found incredible success in her singing career. Many fans were appalled when she was eliminated — fortunately, she didn’t let the setback stop her. Her first two albums went gold and she’s acted in several films, most notably, she was praised for her role as Effie White in Dreamgirls.
Hudson has a net worth of $20 million. She’s made her money not just through her music and acting but also as a spokesperson for Weight Watchers. She has also put her reality TV competition expertise to use as a coach on The Voice.
🎤 Read a book set in Illinois OR with a 7 in the IBSN# OR with a character whose first name begins with a J.

5. Jordin Sparks
The youngest winner of American Idol, Jordin Sparks captured the hearts of America, defeating Blake Lewis in the season finale of season six. She also has the distinct achievement of being the only Idol winner to have their first five singles debut on the top 20 of the Billboard Top 100.
Sparks is estimated to have a net worth of $10 million. She’s earned her sizeable fortune through record sales, acting, and endorsements — including the makeup brand Avon and Wet Seal clothing.
🎤 Read a book set in Arizona OR with a 6 in the IBSN# OR whose title begins with a letter in AVON WET SEAL.

6. Chris Daughtry
They can’t all be winners. In fact, sometimes losing is a blessing in disguise. Chris Daughtry placed fourth on the show’s fifth season — but he didn’t let that stop him. The self-titled debut record by his rock band Daughtry was the fastest selling debut rock record in history. In fact, he’s been more commercially successful than season five winner, Taylor Hicks.
When Chris Daughtry was eliminated from American Idol, he was visibly stunned. Lucky for him, he was immediately offered a recording contract with RCA Records. His albums and shows continue to sell and he has an estimated net worth of $10 million. Not too bad for fourth place.
🎤 Read a book set in a location that begins with R OR with a 5 in the IBSN# OR a book tagged Christian.

7. Katharine McPhee
McPhee claimed second place on season five of American Idol. Despite losing to Taylor Hicks in the finale (she was so close!), she’d still find great success in the entertainment business. Later that year, she released her self-titled debut record on RCA records that would climb to number 2 on the Billboard charts.
McPhee doesn’t rely on singing as her only source of income: She’s also a successful actress, with lead roles on several TV shows. She’s most well-known for her role as Karen Cartwright on the NBC show Smash.
Katherine McPhee has an impressive net worth of $8 million.
🎤 Read a book set in California OR with a 2 in the IBSN# OR with a character that is in the acting profession.

8. Clay Aiken
Another story of success after losing, Clay Aiken’s had quite the career post-Idol — one that includes millions of records sold, a stint on Broadway, and a congressional bid.
Aiken went through quite the transformation on the second season of American Idol, gradually shedding his “geeky” persona as he survived round after round before ultimately claiming second place.
Aiken’s first album Measure of a Man went double platinum. His second and third albums also did well, going platinum and gold, respectively. He’s played himself on the hit television shows The Office and Law and Order: SVU. In 2014, he ran for North Carolina’s 2nd Congressional seat, winning the primary but ultimately losing the election.
Aiken has a net worth of around $7 million.
🎤 Read a book set in North Carolina OR with a 4 in the IBSN# OR with a character that runs for political office.

9. Kellie Pickler
She may have lost American Idol, but she went on to win Dancing with the Stars. Beyond that, she’s still had plenty of success outside of competitive reality TV. Her debut album went gold, producing three singles that cracked the top 20 of the Billboard Hot Country charts.
She’s also the host of Pickler and Ben, a lifestyle and beauty daytime TV show on CMT. She’s also starred on the reality TV program I Love Kellie Pickler.
The “Didn’t You Know How Much I Loved You” singer has an enviable net worth of $5 million. Not bad at all for a “Small Town Girl.”
🎤 Read a book set in a small town OR with a 6 in the IBSN# OR with a character that is on reality or talk TV.

10. Phillip Phillips
Phillips probably has the catchiest name in all of American Idol history — and also one of the catchiest tunes. In fact, the song “Home” from his debut album The World from the Side of the Moon is the best selling single from any American Idol contestant in the show’s history.
Phillip’s found great commercial success with the release of his first album. He also has the distinct honor of being the only American Idol winner that Simon Cowell liked after he had left the show in 2010.
Phillips has an estimated net worth of $5 million. Besides a couple of acting roles, he’s focused almost entirely on a career in music.
🎤 Read a book set in Georgia OR with an 11 in the IBSN# OR with the word HOME in the title.

11. Kris Allen
Kris Allen was determined to be a star. Even before American Idol, he had released a studio album of original songs. After winning the eighth season of Idol, Allen went on to release his self-titled album that peaked at number 11 on the Billboard 200.
Since then he’s released four more albums and dedicated a lot of his time to philanthropic efforts. He’s been on several missionary trips, including one that resulted in him contracting a rare form of hepatitis that nearly killed him. He’s a staunch advocate of music education, supporting various charity programs aimed at promoting school music programs.
Allen has a net worth of approximately $3.5 million.
🎤 Read a book set in Arkansas OR with an 8 in the IBSN# OR where a character is a music teacher or supporter of music in schools.

Rina | 1084 comments American Idol Success Stories
Duration: June 1 - August 31, 2020

Since the series premiered in 2002, American Idol has captivated audiences with its hilariously bad auditions, nail-biting finales, epic performances, and heartwarming stories. Many fans choose their favorite singers at the beginning and root for them to claim the prize — usually a sizeable sum of cash and a recording contract. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always guarantee a lifetime of fame and fortune. Sometimes the losers fare better than the winners.

1. Carrie Underwood
No surprise here. After winning season four of American Idol, Carrie Underwood catapulted up the charts. Underwood was the first woman to release four country music albums that soared to number one.
So far she’s won seven Grammys, 11 Billboard Music Awards, 13 American Music Awards, and tons more accolades.
Obviously, she’s also sold extremely well also — 65 million records worldwide.
The “Blown Away” singer has an impressive net worth of $85 million. Considering she likely pulls in over $500,000 per show, that’s not surprising in the least. Forbes considers her the most successful American Idol star — a claim that’s hard to dispute.
🎤 Read a book set in Oklahoma OR with a 6 and 5 in the IBSN# OR with a MC who is a singer.

2. Kelly Clarkson
The winner of the first season of American Idol is also one of the most successful. Her debut single was a slow burn — it debuted at 60 on the top 100, before quickly ascending to number one in the coming weeks. It was the biggest jump up the Billboard charts in history, breaking a record set by The Beatles 38 years prior.
She took a bold risk on her second album, distancing herself from her American Idol image by using a harder-edged, rock and roll sound and hiring a new talent manager. The strategy seems to have paid off, the album was her most successful to date and features some of her most recognizable songs like “Because of You,” “Behind These Hazel Eyes,” and “Since You’ve Been Gone.”
Clarkson has a net worth of $28 million — but it’s not all from album sales and tour revenue. She’s also a successful children’s author, actress, and a coach on The Voice.
🎤 Read a book set in Texas OR with a 1 in the IBSN# OR with a character that is an author.

3. Adam Lambert
Lambert losing to Kris Allen might be the biggest upset in the history of American Idol. Fans were shocked when it was announced that Lambert wouldn’t be claiming first prize. If there was any silver lining, it was that fans knew he was destined for stardom.
Of course, they were right. Lambert’s trajectory is nearly unparalleled. His first album For Your Entertainment went platinum in three different countries. In 2012, he became the first openly gay singer to top the US Billboard Top 200 with the release of his sophomore album Trespassing.
Lambert’s net worth is estimated to be around $20 million.
🎤 Read a book set in Indiana OR with a 3 in the IBSN# OR with a gay character.

4. Jennifer Hudson
Despite placing seventh on season three of American Idol, Hudson found incredible success in her singing career. Many fans were appalled when she was eliminated — fortunately, she didn’t let the setback stop her. Her first two albums went gold and she’s acted in several films, most notably, she was praised for her role as Effie White in Dreamgirls.
Hudson has a net worth of $20 million. She’s made her money not just through her music and acting but also as a spokesperson for Weight Watchers. She has also put her reality TV competition expertise to use as a coach on The Voice.
🎤 Read a book with a character whose first name begins with a J.

Whiskey Sour, J.A. Konrath, 07.06.2020 - MC's name is Jacqueline (Jack)

5. Jordin Sparks
The youngest winner of American Idol, Jordin Sparks captured the hearts of America, defeating Blake Lewis in the season finale of season six. She also has the distinct achievement of being the only Idol winner to have their first five singles debut on the top 20 of the Billboard Top 100.
Sparks is estimated to have a net worth of $10 million. She’s earned her sizeable fortune through record sales, acting, and endorsements — including the makeup brand Avon and Wet Seal clothing.
🎤 Read a book whose title begins with a letter in AVON WET SEAL.

Vision in Silver, Anne Bishop, 12.06.2020

6. Chris Daughtry
They can’t all be winners. In fact, sometimes losing is a blessing in disguise. Chris Daughtry placed fourth on the show’s fifth season — but he didn’t let that stop him. The self-titled debut record by his rock band Daughtry was the fastest selling debut rock record in history. In fact, he’s been more commercially successful than season five winner, Taylor Hicks.
When Chris Daughtry was eliminated from American Idol, he was visibly stunned. Lucky for him, he was immediately offered a recording contract with RCA Records. His albums and shows continue to sell and he has an estimated net worth of $10 million. Not too bad for fourth place.
🎤 Read a book set in a location that begins with R OR with a 5 in the IBSN# OR a book tagged Christian.

7. Katharine McPhee
McPhee claimed second place on season five of American Idol. Despite losing to Taylor Hicks in the finale (she was so close!), she’d still find great success in the entertainment business. Later that year, she released her self-titled debut record on RCA records that would climb to number 2 on the Billboard charts.
McPhee doesn’t rely on singing as her only source of income: She’s also a successful actress, with lead roles on several TV shows. She’s most well-known for her role as Karen Cartwright on the NBC show Smash.
Katherine McPhee has an impressive net worth of $8 million.
🎤 Read a book set in California

The Lincoln Lawyer, Michael Connelly, 28.07.2020 - set in Los Angeles

8. Clay Aiken
Another story of success after losing, Clay Aiken’s had quite the career post-Idol — one that includes millions of records sold, a stint on Broadway, and a congressional bid.
Aiken went through quite the transformation on the second season of American Idol, gradually shedding his “geeky” persona as he survived round after round before ultimately claiming second place.
Aiken’s first album Measure of a Man went double platinum. His second and third albums also did well, going platinum and gold, respectively. He’s played himself on the hit television shows The Office and Law and Order: SVU. In 2014, he ran for North Carolina’s 2nd Congressional seat, winning the primary but ultimately losing the election.
Aiken has a net worth of around $7 million.
🎤 Read a book set in North Carolina OR with a 4 in the IBSN# OR with a character that runs for political office.

9. Kellie Pickler
She may have lost American Idol, but she went on to win Dancing with the Stars. Beyond that, she’s still had plenty of success outside of competitive reality TV. Her debut album went gold, producing three singles that cracked the top 20 of the Billboard Hot Country charts.
She’s also the host of Pickler and Ben, a lifestyle and beauty daytime TV show on CMT. She’s also starred on the reality TV program I Love Kellie Pickler.
The “Didn’t You Know How Much I Loved You” singer has an enviable net worth of $5 million. Not bad at all for a “Small Town Girl.”
🎤 Read a book set in a small town

If the Broom Fits, Sara Bourgeois, 21.06.2020

10. Phillip Phillips
Phillips probably has the catchiest name in all of American Idol history — and also one of the catchiest tunes. In fact, the song “Home” from his debut album The World from the Side of the Moon is the best selling single from any American Idol contestant in the show’s history.
Phillip’s found great commercial success with the release of his first album. He also has the distinct honor of being the only American Idol winner that Simon Cowell liked after he had left the show in 2010.
Phillips has an estimated net worth of $5 million. Besides a couple of acting roles, he’s focused almost entirely on a career in music.
🎤 Read a book set in Georgia OR with an 11 in the IBSN# OR with the word HOME in the title.

11. Kris Allen
Kris Allen was determined to be a star. Even before American Idol, he had released a studio album of original songs. After winning the eighth season of Idol, Allen went on to release his self-titled album that peaked at number 11 on the Billboard 200.
Since then he’s released four more albums and dedicated a lot of his time to philanthropic efforts. He’s been on several missionary trips, including one that resulted in him contracting a rare form of hepatitis that nearly killed him. He’s a staunch advocate of music education, supporting various charity programs aimed at promoting school music programs.
Allen has a net worth of approximately $3.5 million.
