American Idol 2014 has come and gone and now  we wait to see if Winner Caleb Johnson (or any of the other finalists) find success. Will any of them find themselves in the ranks of Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood or even Phillip Phillips? Time will tell.

For now though, let’s take a look at Billboard’s Top 100 American Idol Hits of All Time. It’s a very interesting list. There are a few surprises on there, but it’s no surprise that Kelly Clarkson, the original American Idol, takes the top two spots.

  1. Brandon, you were a heckuva lot of fun to read all season!! great job once again!!

  2. I always thought it was Carrie Underwood who had the biggest post- idol career. Now I see it was Kelly Clarkston.

  3. Scotty McCreery hasn’t done bad at all. His CD went platinum and his second CD is even better. Phillip isn’t doing bad. “home” got used in countless commcercials, and I think the CD did well.
