I know a handful of Idols winners. I know no artist attached to Voice. I know Melanie but never knew she was part of itMrLeonix wrote:In the United States, "American Idol" is the only show that has produced credible and solid music stars tho (Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, etc).
"The Voice" may be seen as "cooler" these days, but still to this date I haven't seen an actual big star coming out of that show, well, Melanie Martinez did, but not like Kelly or Carrie hit.

The voice only seems to excist to give some underperforming artists a nice extra check, and for Blake and Adam to be able to live their bromance replace the contestants with dolls, puppets or even cats and dogs and you probably get the same ratingsMrLeonix wrote:"The Voice" may be seen as "cooler" these days, but still to this date I haven't seen an actual big star coming out of that show, well, Melanie Martinez did, but not like Kelly or Carrie hit.
http://www.tmz.com/2017/05/22/katy-perr ... crest-abc/Katy Perry is getting a staggering $25 MILLION to judge "American Idol" ... this according to sources familiar with the negotiation.
Multiple sources tell us ABC was desperate to sign a name before the Upfronts last week, when honchos announced she was the lead judge. As one source put it, "Katy had all the leverage. If ABC ended up announcing the show without a judge, they'd be screwed."
TMZ broke a story way back in 2012 that 'A.I.' was trying to get Katy as a judge but she rejected the network's $20 mil offer.
As we reported, ABC tried to get Kelly Clarkson but at the last minute she jumped ship and went to NBC's "The Voice." NBC also snagged Jennifer Hudson.
We're also told ABC is "on the verge" of signing the deal with Ryan Seacrest to host the show. Sources connected with the first run of 'Idol' tell us Ryan was making $15 mil a season at his high point. We're told Jennifer Lopez was also raking in $15 mil a season. So Katy blew them both away.
