BC Magazine is teaming with Teen People, Star Pulse, TeenSport.com, and Fanscape contests to bring one lucky winner a Nintendo Wii and CDs from past American Idol contestants Katharine McPhee, Taylor Hicks, Kellie Pickler, Jennifer Hudson, and Ruben Studdard.
Nintendo Wii, the newest incarnation of gaming consoles from Nintendo, is best distinguished by its wireless controller, which not only works similar to a traditional controller but also senses motion and rotation in three dimensions. The new console is compatible with the previous system, Nintendo Game Cube, and most of its peripherals.
Katharine McPhee and Taylor Hicks were the last two standing in last season's American Idol, with Hicks being crowned the winner of season five. Taylor Hicks released his self-titled CD in December of 2006. Katharine McPhee, the season five runner-up, also released a self-titled CD. Hers hit the streets in January. Ironically, the album was #2 its first week on the charts. Also a season five contestant, Kellie Pickler released her country album, Small Town Girl, post-Idol. The album topped the country charts and is certified gold.
Perhaps it is Jennifer Hudson who has met with the most post-Idol success, however, recently winning an Oscar for role in Dreamgirls even though she finished sixth on the third season of the popular talent contest. She contributed a song to the American Idol season three compilation disc and has worked with Meatloaf, and she is just now heading into the studio to record her first solo album.
Ruben Studdard, winner of season two, has put out three albums post-Idol. His most recent release, The Return, was touted as a return to the artist's R&B roots. His first two albums, Soulful (2003) and I Need an Angel (2004) were certified platinum and gold respectively.
