To answer the question about why everyone doesn't audition for AM.Idol--- It is "selling out" somewhat. They are all taking a big risk by being on this show. They are being type cast.. as the person who was on AMerican Idol, and lost, for the rest of their lives. The people that have won haven't had that great of albums, artistically, and you can tell the record company rules them.. Nowadays, you can produce your own stuff, or do it your way, still have a great little following, with staying power. These American Idols really have the potential to be one hit wonders. I love the show, not the artists. ALthough, if done right, they could have great albums. Hello...MS. Independent, A moment like this???? Sorry was ok, but what the heck, Ruben could sound so much better in a different song!!!!!!
