Lessons Learned From American Idol

American Idol is without doubt the biggest marketing (and making money) machine in the history of the music industry. Promote your uncanny ability to position and transform talent into well-known and obscure names, before they absorb or release a single, unprecedented and unparalleled. Some hate the show, others love it, but everyone has an opinion about it. With the American Idol 5 Tour grossing 35.2 million U.S. dollars in just 59 days, and the Nielsen ratings for the debutthe sixth in the upcoming season to a whopping 37 million viewers, it's more than just a show, it is a franchise with a show – and the show is a runaway hit, with no signs of slowing down.

This article sheds light on five valuable lessons that are on music artists who arrange to see the show with the dream that one day, a commercial music success, or the next American idol.

5.) MAINTAIN UNDERDOG STATUS. Among tonnes singing lessons from a previous recording contract, afamous family member or good looks should be downplayed. America loves to root for the underdog, as a rule – and this show in particular. The show viewers recognize that it's a fine line between confidence and arrogance. Chris Daughtry mileage (season five participants), the line and went into the wall of humility, and leave the show a true expression of shock and dismay on his face has that perfectly captured by the cameras again and was constantly played by the media.Lesson learned: The moment you show arrogance to refer to the people there and are less willing to help you.

4.) via the feedback. Simon, Randy and Paula offer "constructive feedback" to participants after each performance for the purpose of correcting errors and improving future performance. Some use. Some do not. Every American Idol winner is. This feedback (so entertaining or critical, as it may be), often proves to be a turning point for the participants on the edge, asElliott Yamin, was advised to relax. If he had to be noted that the consultation would not have the American Idol competition, the best male singer escaped the fifth season. Lesson learned: Use the advice offered with the experience to your advantage.

3.) Being humble. Justin Guarini (a lot of favorite among the coveted female audience show) fell into disgrace, and front-runner status in his first season with a selfish exchange with Simon Cowell (as hereceive constructive feedback), in which he declared, "I do not care what you think … they like me," he said, pointing to the crowd and is rooted in their cheers. "That's all that matters." He apologized the next week … But it was a mistake that seemed to haunt him and cost him would inevitably be a certain victory. With a wrong time (and ill-advised) exchange, he showed arrogance and arrogance, which allowed Kelly Clarkson surge from behind and clinch the victory. Lessoncheer learned: Do not leave for themselves, the voters do it for you.

2.) Pleasant.) Taylor Hicks (winner of season five, flattered himself with his animated personality and dancing off-beat. The cheerful impudence of Fantasia (winner of the third season), the mild-mannered Southern charm Ruben Studdard (season two winners), and the wholesomeness of Carrie Underwood (winner of season four), are examples of the endearing qualities that relate to American Idol Viewers to the vote andfor. Lesson learned: We are motivated, something for which we want – voting is only doing one of them.

1.) Choose the right songs. Ruben Studdard has a masterful job of choosing songs that presents not only his vocal talents and strengths but also its versatility. His rendition of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" distanced him from the pack and assured his victory. Fanatasia's interpretation of "Summertime", assured them a record contract, and Kelly Clarkson courageous coverage of ArethaFranklin's "Natural Woman" helped her as a real singer position. In each scenario proved to be the logical choice of the right song and the perfect combination with the voice of the singer, vocal range and performance art to the right formula for American Idol winner, and it is also the formula for a successful career as a commercial recording artist .
