American Idol and Its Newfound Steam?
Lately it seems that reality TV talent competitions are dime-a-dozen, and viewers have more choices. Thus, it's no surprise that the monopoly that American Idol once held on this game has now, if not gone, softened. With more exciting and current competitions such as The Voice, X-Factor, and the upcoming Duets (in which former Idol winner Kelly Clarkson is a judge), American Idol is struggling more than ever. However, with the hoopla surrounding the talent that is Jessica Sanchez, American Idol may be revived, and sales for American Idol Live! tour are actually great. Perhaps, the fact that exciting talent has finally graced the AI stage once again could be attributed for this new strength in fan base, making American Idol once again relevant.
