I figure this is the place to ask this type of question.
Back in 2003 (I'm almost sure it was in 2003), back when American Idol was getting its footing, there was another reality singing show that happened for one season only, that was viewed as the major competitor to American Idol. A.I. won out, and has gone on to many additional seasons, whereas that other show, which was equally huge at the time, was one-and-done.
I recall that show, however, was a contest of not just singing, but the entire performance package, which meant dancing. I remember the winner winning a guaranteed album with a major producer. The winner was an asian male, and the runner-up was a blond female. I recall watching the finale.
Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I know this show existed, but I can't remember its name, and it didn't go into a 2nd season (though at the time I was surprised by this, cause the show seemed to have gravitas, in the same way A.I. did). The show was named "Superstar" or something like that, but I haven't been able to find it anywhere.
Thanks in advance.
