Who's the next Carrie Underwood?

Posted on

Well, that didn’t take long. We’re only a couple weeks into the semifinals of American Idol, and already, the producers are bringing back last year’s winner Carrie Underwood to sing her hit, ”Jesus, Take the Wheel” on tomorrow night’s results show. There’ll be a blatant contrast between Underwood’s polish and the rawness of the current crop of semifinalists. Think any of them could actually achieve recording industry success on Underwood’s level? Paris Bennett maybe? Melissa McGhee? Kellie Pickler? Mandisa?

Whose CD would you buy, PopWatchers?
