DeWyze Thinks About His Hit

Sign us up for a copy!!

As a celebration for their ten years on the air, the people over at American Idol are about to release a Greatest Hits compilation for the fans!

It's called American Idol 10th Anniversary — The Hits and here’s the tracklist:

“Since U Been Gone” by Kelly Clarkson
“Superstar” by Ruben Studdard
“Invisible” by Clay Aiken
“When I See You” by Fantasia
“Before He Cheats” by Carrie Underwood
“Takin’ It To The Streets” by Taylor Hicks
“Home” by Daughtry
“No Air” by Jordin Sparks (with Chris Brown)
“Light On” by David Cook
“Live Like We’re Dying” by Kris Allen
“Whataya Want From Me” by Adam Lambert
“Sweet Serendipity” by Lee DeWyze

Strange though, we’re not sure we would’ve chosen ALL these song specifically! There seem to be a few missing, and a few odd ones that made it.

Our source sums up the thoughts running through our minds pret-ty neatly:

“The problem with a greatest hits album is that only a few of the contestants (and even fewer of the nine winners) have had any actual hits. What about a CD full of remastered recordings from memorable live performances from the show’s nine seasons? Fantasia’s “Summertime”, Blake Lewis’ “You Give Love A Bad Name”, Crystal Bowersox’s “Me And Bobby McGee”, Kris Allen’s “Heartless”, Adam Lambert’s “Mad World”, Carrie Underwood’s “Alone”… we could go on.”

We could too!

Wonder if anybody will ever say they bought it for that Taylor Hicks track specifically. LOLz!!

What would a perfect Idol Hits tracklist look like to U??

    YES, I will be the first to say I'd buy it for the Taylor Hicks song!



  2. 2

    Literally, the last CD I would ever buy…



  3. 3

    Where is Jennifer Hudson !!!!!!!



  4. 4

    If it really were to be a HIT collection from Idol then it would be half kelly clarkson and half carrie underwood, minor some few tracks others, not including Taylor, or Ruben, or Lee…

    I like many of the songs on the album and yes I will buy it. More importantly I think your picture poking fun of Lee DeWyze is uncalled for and inappropriate and I think "Sweet Serendipity" is considered a "HIT" by alot of people. That picture added zip to your article except to make you look like a jerk with that scribble in the corner! You could have written the article without the pictorial insult! Shame on you Perez Hilton!!

    yah kelly and carrie are the only stars that came out of that show w. staying power (who won the show)



  10. 10

    They need to just leave it to the American Idol winners. They did win for a reason. Either way… I would get it for Kelly, Tasia, and Carrie.



  11. 11

    Sorry but Adam's the man. Kelly and Carrie are pretty good too.



  12. 12

    guess they're using a pretty loose definition of the term "hit"



  13. 13

    i'll just wait for kelly's new album rather than buying this. more than half of the songs listed are not real 'hit'…
