The second-season contestant said that circumstances have changed with the franchise.
“When I was on, Ruben [Studdard] and myself and Kimberley Locke were the stars of the show. Now, ‘Idol’ is about the judges. I don’t even know if they remember there are contestants anymore.”
He makes a good point because more people can probably name the vice president of the United States than the past three winners of “Idol.”
And that’s saying something.
