"Idol" Winners Continue To Shine
Both "American Idol" and "Pop Idol" got very lucky with their first winners. Grammy winner Kelly Clarkson gave Idol tremendous legitimacy. And the very first Idol winner of all -- the UK's Will Young -- proved Idols could have genuine careers, with at least three best-selling albums under his belt. Young has also appeared in film and now gets a very strong review from the Evening Standard for his performance on stage in Noel Coward's "The Vortex." If I'm lucky, it'll come to London and I can check it out.
