Is there a person or song that should have been included on this list?




  1. Where's Crystal Bowersox? Farmer's Daughter, Mine All Mine, Mason are all great songs.

  2. What about Elliot Yamin's "I'll Wait for You"? I know he wasn't a winner, but neither was Clay or Lambert…

  3. I won't be buying it either.

    All the songs suck with the exception of the few newest songs.

    Where's Kellie Pickler, Crystal Bowersox?

    No good!!

    • totally agree

      maybe "Crush" or "You Can" should've been there

      and maybe also kellie pickler, idk

  4. Only the exceptional runner-ups get recognition! I'f your predicted winner isn't on the CD then your probably not going to buy it

  5. Wouldn't it have made more sense for a "10th Anniversary of American Idol" CD to have songs that were sung on the show?? To me, no "celebration" of AI is complete without Fantasia's "Summertime", Clay Aiken's "Bridge Over Troubled Water", and amazing performances that were performed ON THE SHOW. There have been enough memorable performances on the show for a box set. Simply compiling a selection of AI contestant's songs since they left the show doesn't seem to celebrate the "show" very much to me.

    • I agree completely, when they announced the release of this CD I was thinking how cool it was to release the best of American Idol only to be disappointed.

  6. I'm so glad to see runner-ups Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert included with the winners. They are both winners in their own right. Thank you!

  7. Well, I guess they couldn't put a song from everybody, but seems like it might have been worth making a double CD set. I agree that Elliot Yamin, David Archuleta, and some of the other non-winners have had strong enough sales to merrit including. AND, they are popular, with lots of growing fans. 12 songs just aren't enough, but these compilation CDs usually do sell cheap. It would have promoted the show much more if they had included of the hits past contestants have had, winner or not. Oh well, I just get what I like from iTunes anyway. Rarely ever buy a whole CD from a store anymore.

  8. love kris allen’s “live like we’re dying” and lee dewyze’ “sweet serendipity”.. been listening to it over and over… would love to see them again. oh, heard lee dewyze will be in AI when the top 12 finalists perform. can’t wait.

  9. Someone forgot Jennifer Hudson!!

    and for me (very personal) but I loved Melinda Doolittle.

    The CD should be celebrating the songs when they were contestants.

    This CD is made on the songs all these people made money and even is the goal this is a celebration of American Idol the program! not the what happened after.

    • Okay, what is wrong? The folks will hear all the complaints. (not) Crystal B. is doing great! ( She is still singin' her heart out at a local subway station! Love that kid!

      • Marta, Jennifer is making more money than you and I. She's cool! Why are you wondering where she is? We know where she is. (smiley face)

      • Ashli asked:

        Is there a person or song that should have been included on this list?

        and I responded yes! Jennifer Hudson should be in this CD not because what she is making now but because she was a super contestant. As I said before this CD should be truly an Anniversary of American Idol not only for the winners of each season but for the singers that made a difference in the program. Maybe my english is not good but I think I was very clear in my comment.

  10. It's a crime that the kid that's been voted in several polls as the best Idol ever, David Archuleta gets hosed again by AI. First in the rigged voting that awarded David Cook as the winner instead of a far, far superior singer, David A. and now this fiasco. Good luck selling this piece of crap. Crush would have been great or Angels, or something off of his latest album. A real crime!

    • "Voted in several polls?" troll, Cook, actually sings and has the talent to back it up. Archuleta? Voice?? not

  11. My most favorite Idol contestant of all must also be on the new Idol cd or maybe perhaps on vol 2. It is Michael Johns (season 7) and the song must put on the cd is 'We are the champions'!

  12. Since it's called "Volume 1" they obviously wanted to leave some really strong songs to carry the inevitable Volume 2 (like David Archuleta's Crush, which outsold several of the tracks on this list). Also, not sure why they picked a duet for Jordin Sparks instead of one of her solo hits.

    I'm looking forward to hearing David Cook's new album, and Archuleta's "The Other Side of Down" is amazing, maybe some of those songs will be on Volumes 2 & 3!

  13. i guess bo bice (U Make Me Better), katharine mcphee (Over It) and david archuleta (A Little Too Not Over You) should make cut in this compilation. They're such contenders in the competition..
