Are American Idol winners an accurate reflection of US opinion in general?


Love the show. Often disagree with winner. Don't vote myself, but suspect most voters are teenage females who tend to favor young males. A cursory web search confirms many others think this as well. How does Nick whose vocal range was usually well within the safe zone, beat Jax and Clark who consistently took emotion, style, and vocal ability way beyond that? Same thing when Phillip Phillips beat Jessica Sanchez (excellent Whitney Houston songs) a few years back. I thinks IA is ending next year because the voting doesn't reflect the viewership. Feedback to or for is welcome.

    Hi Keith. I believe you're correct about AI winners becoming less popular as the show's novelty wears off each passing year. That, plus increasing competition from similar shows, is probably why the show is winding down next year.

    Sure, there's lots of sub-par TV. but AI is a quality production. The judges in particular, have been a class act. With DVR one can filter on only preferred viewing and FF commercials. I learn a lot from the History, Science, and Financial channels.
