If Tamyra Gray won American Idol instead of Kelly Clarkson...?

Would Kelly fall to obscurity like Tamyra has, and would Tamyra be the star?


LOL Live Like Your Dying did better on the charts than Adam's song...

And Tamyra WAS the favorite to win Idol, Clarkson wasn't. Remember Melinda Doolittle, same case.

    That's a might big "if". Kelly Clarkson is a great singer, which is why she won.

    This YouTube video shows all of her American Idol performances; she clearly deserved to win.

    If Kelly lost but still continued to make CDs and tour,and everything,she still would've been around. If Tamyra won, but only made one CD and then went on to do Broadway,or whatever, she still would've fallen to obscurity. Where they place has nothing to do with anything except for the show. How they do after depends on how good their CD is, how many people buy their CD and how driven and commited they are to maintain a career. Once the competition on the show ends, they go on to compete with everyone else on the charts. Some make it big, some don't, but it all depends on how well they do out in the real world. The title is just for the show, but has nothing to do with how successful they will be afterward (just ask Chris Daughtry and Jennifer Hudson).
