28 American Idol Attractions

From Comedic Show Replacements to Polarizing Casting Changes

— February 10, 2010 — Pop Culture
With a brand new season of American Idol underway and a new judge on the panel being none other than Ellen Degeneres, the hit reality show is back in the headlines once again. For the talent contest that never seems to lose popularity, I present 29 American Idol Attractions from the hosts to the contestants to the winners. I even threw in some karaoke toys for those aspiring stars. And of course these 29 American Idol Attractions would not be complete without at least one article featuring Ryan Seacrest’s hair. Enjoy!
