American Idols – Where are they Now????

February 3, 2007

This morning while nursing my Angel Baby; imagine my surprise while watching a new show on Discovery Channel called Really Big Things I notice something that consumes my afternoon.
The host is talking about some mining equipment (why does a mom of two who likes all things girly like shows like this and dirty job is totally beyond me but I DO love them) and I think, know this guy! He introduces himself, “Hi, my name is Matt.” Yes…I do know this guy.

I Yahoo the show and low and behold…It is Matt Rogers Season 3 American Idol. Scarier than my liking total dude shows…is the fact that I can place the face of a somewhat obscure, going on 3 seasons ago, AI Alumni voted off 2nd out of the final 12.
Since appearing on Idol Matt has Since his appearance on American Idol, Rogers has served as co-host for American Idol Extra and worked as a correspondent on several sports and entertainment shows, including Turner Sports College Football, Best Damn Sports Show, Access Hollywood and Entertainment Tonight before becoming the host to Really Big Things.
This prompts me to wonder what the rest of the Idols are doing…so I started with the last seasons and I am working down to Kelly Clarkson.

Beginning with last seasons Winner….
Taylor Hicks – Taylor has been busy from what I learned at his official site. Hicks’s debut single “Do I Make You Proud” debuted on the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and was subsequently certified gold. The album was released in December 206 and debuted at the number two spot on the Billboard 200 charts. It was certified as a platnium.

In June 2006, Ford Motor Company, the show’s major sponsor, signed Hicks to promote Ford’s “Drive on Us” year-end sales event. He was also named Hottest Bachelor by People Magazine for 2006, appearing on the magazine’s cover (which I did buy).

He is also penning his life story set to hit the stores in Spring 2007.

He has already been parodied by Weird Al which can be found here

Ace Young – Ace is working on his album with members from Dishwalla (loved this band), and Jewel and Don Henley’s bands. He also appeared on Half and Half which was on UPN and is no longer on the air. For eye candy check out his website here. His song Scattered is currently being played on your radio. Tune in if you dig this type of music.

Did Ace just get flashed or is he gazing on this….
because honestly that is the face I made when I saw that picture.

Bucky Covington – Recently released his 1st single “A Different World” to country music stations on January 16th. His album drops on April 17th. Check out all things Bucky here

Chris Daughtry – Who hasn’t seen Chris? He has been everywhere. Here is one of his sites and also here on his MySpace page where you can hear some of his songs.

He is singing the National Anthem at the Superbowl. He has been on TRL. He’s GOT the #1 album on Billboard’s Top 200. He is also the 1st band since Bon Jovi to (over 20 years ago in 1988 with New Jersey) to hit the top spot after debuting below #1 in the Top 10.

Elliott Yamin – His debut album drops on March 20th. Here is his MySpace where you can hear some of his music and check out Elliott’s new look if you like that kind of thing.

Here is a comparison shot of the New Elliott and the Old Elliott. Which do you prefer???

Katherine McGhee – Katherine is another one who has been everywhere. She’s on the red carpet, she’s on Ugly Betty, she is performing her single “Over it” everywhere.

For tons of McFever eye candy pics and her song go here

Here is her MySpace page

Kellie Pickler – Her album Small Town Girl is currently #9 on Country Billboards. She handed out an award at the Country Music Awards, been on Larry King, and co-hosted The View on top of the fact that 20th Century Fox and 19 Television are developing a half hour sitcom starring Picker I’d say that she is having a banner year.
Her site can be found here although it is not really a complete site yet. I like her single “Red High Heels which can also be found on her site.

Kevin Covais – Kevin made the media circuit with appearances on Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen DeGeneres, Live with Regis and Kelly, etc. Currently he is working with the American Diabetes Association to educate young people about diabetes. Like everyone else in the world he also has a MySpace page

Lisa Tucker – Lisa has been on the OC as herself and on Zoey 101. Her MySpace page can be found here

Mandisa – Yup, she too has a MySpace in case you were wondering.
She is in a movie that I never heard of called The Second Chance (she is in the choir) She also has book coming out in June 2007 called Idoleyes and a debut album dropping into stores in May 2007.
Melissa McGhee – Has been busy playing various festivals such as Weeki Wachee and the Pet Rock Festival. She also has toured with Reuben Studdard from Season 2 and recently had vocal surgery, but has made a full recovery. Melissa has starred and sang in the new More TV 32 commercial singing “More, More, More”. She also appeared at VH1‘s “Big in ’06” along with Katharine McPhee. Her MySpace page is here

Paris Bennett – Paris was on Live with Regis and Kelly, Entertainment Tonight, Ellen, and a bunch more talk/interview shows. She sang the National Anthem at the NBA game between the Pistons and Miami Heat. Paris mentioned in an interview she has a line of clothing coming out Tres P. Remember, her nickname was Princess P? She along with Mandisa and Covais sang in the Walt Disney Christmas Special. Her album is due out in March of this year. Yup…here it is

Does anyone remember that she was this cute because I don’t.
