Specifically non-American Idol alum at all possible.
Taylor Swift would’ve lost so bad. I think someone like Ariana Grande would of won though.
Taylor swift and Selena Gomez wouldn’t even get in. Bruno Mars would win as well as Arianna Grande. Someone like Victoria Justice would have an amazing singing career if they went on this show. Demi Lovato would do well.
If it were based only on voice, Pink would do well; but with Idol image is so important I think she would have been eliminated in the auditions round by the judges.
Christina Aguilera would have won the show, IMHO. Britney would have been very popular but I don’t think her voice alone would have helped her much.
If Idol was around in the late 80’s, I have no doubt Mariah Carey would have won the show.
I think people like Paula Cole, Sarah McLachlan, Lisa Loeb would have all been discarded by the judges.
Ice JJ Fish would get rejected in a heartbeat. Nick Cannon would also be rejected. So many to name.
