Has there ever been a season of American Idol that has resulted in more record deals than Season 10?
Earlier this week, sixth-place finisher Casey Abrams nabbed a deal with Concord Records, becoming the sixth Season 10 alum to score a recording contract. And now, just a few days later, seventh-place finisher Stefano Langone has become the seventh Season 10 alum to get signed. Not too shabby!
Langone, who is being managed by 19 Entertainment, will join Hollywood Records, the same label as acts such as Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, and Jesse McCartney. The singer posted this video to his Twitter account to celebrate. (Heads up: it’s a little more lo-fi than Abrams’ music video!)
So to recap: Out of Season 10’s top nine contestants, seven (Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, Haley Reinhart, James Durbin, Pia Toscano, Abrams, and Langone) have gotten recording contracts, one (Paul McDonald) is making sweet music with Twilight‘s Nikki Reed, and one (Jacob Lusk) is presumably still forcing his “lusky stank” wherever he’s allowed.
Are you excited for Stefano? (We bet alleged girlfriend Haley Reinhart is!) Do you think he’ll be able to launch a successful career?
