    And just for comparison's sake:

    Clay - 2.7 million
    Thanks Remus.

    Just to make the comparisons more useful:

    Kelly/Thankful - 2.4 million in about 36 months
    Clay/Measure Of A Man - 2.7 million in 27 months
    Ruben/Soulful - 1.7 million in 25 months
    Fantasia/Free Yourself - 1.8 million in about 16 months (?)
    Carrie/Some Hearts - 2.1 million in about 4 months

    Kelly/ Breakaway - over 4.5 million in about 12 mo. (I don't remember when it came out but it was over 1 year ago.)

    No I wouldn't say Ruben and Fantasia have "flopped."

    Taylor is going to alter the face of pop music for the better. He is the breath of fresh air that has been missing since Kurt Cobain left the building.

    I for one would be glad for him to usher pop "divas" and boy bands out the door. It's high time.

    Let us not forget Ruben's gospel CD -- I NEED AN ANGEL, which I hear went GOLD. Does anyone have the sales figures for this CD ?

    Also, I'd like to know the sales figures of non-winners who made albums post-idol ( other than Clay ).

    Specifically :

    LaToya London ( She recorded LOVE AND LIFE. IMHO she was one of the best female singers in AI *EVER*. She was better than Fantasia ).

    Kimberly Locke ( What was the sales volume for her CD, ONE LOVE ? )

    Tamyra Gray ( She wrote one of the songs in Fantasia's debut album. I wonder how her album(s) sold ... )

    Bo Bice ( What was the sales volume for THE REAL THING ?)

    Diana Degarmo ( who is now starring in Broadway's Hairspray, made her debut CD -- BLUE SKIES )

    George Huff ( I hear that his gospel album -- BRIGHTER DAYS, reached top 15 in the gospel charts. Anyone know the sales volume ?)

    Thanks for any info you or anyone can provide.

    SPOILER ALERT : Taylor Hick's Song for Wednesday

    OK Folks, I just found out from sources in other boards what Taylor Hick's has decided to sing this Wednesday.....

    Am I allowed to post it though ? I don't know the rules and I don't want to be kicked off for ruining the suspense.

    If I get the nod from the moderator and at least 2 people, I'll post it.

    Bluesfan,

    if i'm not mistaken, taylor's choice of "Levon" was posted on this board long before he sang it on Tuesday night. I believe it is okay for you to say what song he will sing.

    Put it in spoiler tags, please. If it hasn't happened yet then it is a spoiler.

    If Levon was posted beforehand and wasn't tagged then it was overlooked.

    ETA: if you need to know how to do a spoiler tag, go down to the bottom left hand corner of this page and click on 'vB code'.
