It starts with a dream, ya’ll. It’s how a laid back son of a Georgia pawn shop owner can become a superstar overnight! Well, that’s the meme more or less. In reality, American Idol can promise stardom to its winners–at least in the short term.
The incredible success of winner Phillip Phillip’s coronation single, “Home”–it’s now officially double platinum and charting in 5 radio formats, including the never before cracked by Idols Adult Alternative–allows Idol to use their latest winner for bragging rights. And to remind new shiny contenders like The Voice that the mother ship may have suffered some ratings setbacks, but can STILL produce alums who go on to succeed in the music business.
I love it! Check out the new promo below.
