    'American Idol' champions: After the win

    'American Idol' champions: After the win

    Winning "American Idol" has been the dream of many American singers since the hit show began in 2002. It offers everything a budding singer wants -- and needs -- to jumpstart a career: a weekly platform, a guaranteed recording deal, millions of potential fans (and record buyers).

    However, a quick look at the past 10 winners of the worldwide phenomenon reveals a mixed bag. Some went on to have wildly successful careers; others have faded into obscurity after a fleeting moment under the spotlight; while some are still struggling to take a foothold in Hollywood.

    Now that Phillip Phillips has been chosen the 11th "American Idol," let's take a look at the winners of the past 10 seasons of the hit reality show.

    SEASON 4: CARRIE UNDERWOOD (2005)

    Before 'Idol': College student from Checotah, Oklahoma
    Number of Albums: 4: Some Hearts, Carnival Ride, Play On, Blown Away
    Album Sales: 13 million
    Awards: 116 awards out of 175 nominations, including 5 Grammys, 11 Academy of Country Music awards, 6 AMAs, and 16 Billboard Music awards.

    That's a nice article. It's amazing to think of the ride Carrie has been on since her American Idol win seven years ago. I honestly don't think that her success can be duplicated. Congratulations to Phillip Phillips on his win last night. Good luck to him! Thank you for posting, cary78663.

    Interesting reading. Thank you for posting. Lee & Kris have very dismal album sales...not surprising. I think Phillip faces the same road.
