    Re: Top 10 Earning Idols Last Year.

    Kris is currently working on album 3, if only counting post idol albums. He has been consistently touring, other than when his hand was injured after a car accident, since he won. I think he is fantastic, and he's my favorite winner, but I never expected him to be a high grossing artist. I love catching him in concert when he is near me.

    And therein is the exact reason The Glambots are so reviled across the blogosphere. The season is long gone, Adam is doing well so why continue the beat down on Kris?

    Kris is now in Nashville recording his next album. He is also doing well enough so there is no reason to gloat.

    Reminds me of the Clay vs. Ruben fans of days gone by. Really doesn't matter who won and who is doing better, in my opinion. If they can manage to make enough money doing what they love so they don't have to go back to their day jobs ... they're a winner, however many records they sell.

    I totally agree. In my opinion, Adam is the most talented performer ever to emerge from American Idol, and I'm glad to see him doing so well.

    The link below is a “leaked” document that shows booking fees for almost any musical act you might be interested in, check it out.

    A leaked document from a booking agency revealed what it cost to book popular bands. Also unpopular bands. | Music | Happy Place

    But since this is an Idol forum, here are the Idols I saw. I might have missed some, so don’t hold me to it.

    Carrie Underwood - $400- 500k

    Jennifer Hudson $200-400k

    Daughtry $200-300k

    Kelly Clarkson $150-300k

    Fantasia $100k+

    Katherine McPhee $100k

    Adam Lambert $85 – 125k

    Clay Aiken $85 – 100k

    Phillip Phillips $65 – 85k

    Kellie Pickler $60 – 80k

    David Archuelleta $30 – 50k

    Danny Gokey $30k

    David Cook - $20 – 40k

    Crystal Bowersox $10-20k

    Josh Gracin $10-20k

    Kris Allen $10-20k

    Lee DeWyze $10-15k

    Blake Lewis - $10k

    Bo Bice (Band) $7.5-12.5k

    Bo Bice (Solo) $3.5 – 7.5k

    Not too bad for a night's "work".

    Adam Lambert. Some things I really loved on the idol stage, the best being Mad World for me. But post idol, well I'm not a fan of hyper homo-erotic
    antics on stage so the shine tarnished a bit for me. I know there's a place for it, and it's nothing new, Madonna, Gaga, Cyrus all do the same sort of thing, but it gets old quickly. I'm more of the give me a great lyric and melody type of person. I think that over everything else will endure.


    That said, image isn't everything. I have been reading this week about Sia, the Aussie with the impeccable voice who has penned classics like Breathe Me, Titanium, etc. and she came on Ellen, sang her latest Chandelier, but did not reveal herself, a little girl who was in the video was on stage. I so totally get it. I love Sia, regardless of how she appears. In the past she has been criticized for not being pretty, as if that is supposed to be a measure of her singing ability. So I get why people know her music but they don't know her. The music speaks for itself.

    This is my all time favorite vocal from Sia. She's in the studio very casual but just has a mind boggling beautiful vocal: Day Too Soon

    I have never heard of Sia, and the only reason I've heard any of the songs mentioned is people singing them on competition shows. So, anyway, I checked out a few videos. Who is criticizing her for not being pretty?? Because she is. Not my favorite type of music, but do like her vocals.

    People mostly who just see the appearance. She's struggled a lot with self esteem, did the drug scene, etc. There's speculation although she wrote the Flo'Rida song Wild Ones she was left off and a pretty girl took her place and lip-sync'd her voice. Maybe that's how she wanted it.
