There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

Curious to hear what losing will sound like on Season 10 of American Idol?
Season 7 winner David Cook has recorded the contestant "kick-off" song (above) which is an updated version of Simple Minds' 1985 hit Don't You (Forget About Me).
Some may call it sacrilege, but we're thinking many people will enjoy hearing Cook's cover of the '80s classic song as contestants are kicked off the show.
Do U approve of the new Idol contestant "kick-off" song?
The best of the best are all here!

A lot has changed, but the message remains the same!
P.S. - Here's an idea: you got all of them to do the commercial, now get all of them to be mentors. Seriously! Celebrate a decade of Idol with each week having a different winner be a mentor.
Don't even try and act like that is not a good idea!
Last night, Simon Cowell judged American Idol for the very last time.
To celebrate him, many of the Idols, past and present, sang a big tribute song to the man who made them fear their own talent. But there was some noticeable faces missing from the line-up, including season seven winner David Cook and last year's runner-up, Adam Lambert!
So where were they?
Apparently, according to Adam's tweets, he was never invited to perform on Idol. He was only asked to sit in the audience. He also found himself battling a nasty case of laryngitis, so he opted to stay home and rest. Glambert tweeted:
"Would have loved 2 have been at the Idol Finale to wish Simon farewell and support the finalists, but this tour for my fans is my priority…was put on vocal rest yesterday from MY show's rehearsals which doubled the work 2 do 2day since all equip. had 2 be sent back east tonight."
As for David, he was far, far away at a charity gig in Kansas City, but also tweeted his regrets for not being a part of the celebration:
"Congrats to Lee DeWyze! So sorry I could be there to see all my fellow idols. I'm there in spirit!"
Not the same, but we forgive you both. Simon might not though. Just saying.

Nothing like the original!
Though we are a little surprised Carrie Underwood didn't take the lead, its a well deserved accolade for Kelly Clarkson to say that she, over any other American Idol contestant, has been the most successful.
Though Carrie can say that she has sold more overall albums than Kelly, America's first Idol boasts the highest Track Sales and Radio Plays.

Sorry Sangina. You didn't quite make the list.
