I Wonder If Fox Ever Considered Doing An American Idol:All Stars Show Like Dancing With The Stars:All Stars Bring Back Fan Favorite Contestants And Let People Vote It Might Be Able To Help The Ratings.

Never gonna happen, but I LOVE the idea, simply because I'll get to vote for Carrie on AI at last :'(
It will not. The only rating drawing will be Carrie and she is only one person.
lol, the whole thought of an all star Idol is hilarious.
Anyone who's had success after the show wouldn't do it and who really cares about the rest.
They supposedly tried to do All Star Idol a few years ago, but they couldn't get enough contestants to do it. I don't think that anyone that has already appeared on Idol would want to come back to compete again. They all have done that already and have their own careers.
I don't think they approached winners to compete because obviously that would be a bit much given that they've already won lol. I read somewhere that Kellie Pickler was asked back for the All Star version, so I think they were aiming more for contestants that were popular with viewers or those that viewers may have felt were wronged by the voting process.
I have a feeling in reality the only former Idols that would do it would be people no one would remember lol.
At first I thought you meant like a class reunion. Which could be fun to watch and see.
But a competition??
My feeling is that Carrie "almost hated" the whole thing. It was scary, demoralizing and ultimately says nothing about ones true talent.
I don't think she would ever go back to the Idol stage to be judged as long as she lives!
She probably still has nightmares about it.
She won and would not go back in hopes of lightning striking twice. It probably "wouldn't" by the way.
Maybe they could bring in alums of other singing shows who didn't go very far on that show, oh wait that is what The Voice does.
A concert or something maybe but not a competition. If they do the competition and public voting, they won't get any of the big players including Kelly, Carrie, J-Hud, Fantasia, Daughtry, Jordin and most of the other winners except maybe Taylor Hicks. I just hope TPTB realizes that the show has run its course and pulls the plug on it after next season. 13 (at least I think it's 13) is a good number to stop at.
They did that Global Idol thing a long time ago with Idol winners around the world that Kelly participated in. I think she came in second.
