Did American Idol ruin music, or did it make music better?

http://money.cnn.com/2015/05/11/media/american-ido...

Personally, I only watched one season all the way thru(The year Daughtry was in it). Most of the winners IMO, have annoying music, and have brought the quality of music in general way down.

Now, people like Arianna Grande, are considered talented(yes I know she wasn't a AI contestant, she's from Nickelodeon).

I think AI helped ruin music. Maybe since it's gone, you'll see real musicians again.

Update:

Clarkson, and Underwood are the only two noteworthy IMO(and Clarkson sings terrible songs).

    There have been some very talented people come from American Idol; Carry Underwood, Phillip Phillips, Kelly Clarkson to name a few. Music in general has hit a low since 2000. It's all that rap and screaming and riffs. No one wants to hear that. They all sound alike...and it ain't good.

    It helped create Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Daughtry, David Cook, and some good talent

    I think it got bad after Simon left

    I don't think it ruined music

    What ruined music is the people that can't sing using auto tone and lipsyncing, Teenagers only liking certain singers/bands because they are cute

    American idol made music better because the kids that always wanted to become famous gets a chance to be their dream job
