Nobody is forcing them to do it though. They are doing it on their own will.

I'm really surprised Kelly had the #1 album though...I didn't realize she had such a following. I mean, I've watched every episode of American Idol (except for one show when our cable was out)...but I have never cast a vote or bought any American Idol stuff.

there are a lot of young girls out there who could use a more wholesome singing star to look up to other than brittney spears. i haven't heard her new album, but if it's anything like her last song, i'd rather have my ten year old daughter listening to kelly clarkson than brittney or christina or j. lo.

i say good for her


there's a lot of shitty people out there right now with records in the top 20. better for her top be #1, at least she's got some morals it seems.

She's got a nice voice, but that "A Moment Like This" song is the syrupiest thing ever!

Count me in among those who will never, ever watch American Idol.

Do I like the songs - NO. Does she have a good voice and actually sing - hell yes.

she sold almost 300,000 copies. She was on a show for 6 months with an audience of up to almost 40 million people. 300,000 isn't huge considering and this would have been a LOT bigger number if she would have had an album come out right after she actually won the title of American Idol.

I'm glad it beat 50 cent to honest.

And as for Americans being "sheep" - this show was first in England and had a much more profound effect on the success of the winners than the show here in America.
