This looks about right, gang, but I’m not surprised our sweet Melissa placed at 5th overall and that an under-rated Diana De Garmo ended up last. The top four were dead on IMHO but I would have thought that Daughtry’s numbers would have been a little closer to Clay, given his ability for radio airplay. Then, again, those Clayfans know how to “stand by their man” on any given day!

What say you all? On the money or all washed up? Let the discussion begin!

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 28  /PRNewswire/ — American Idol Rewind is back, and this time the popular syndicated series will highlight Season 2, the year that put American Idol on the map with legendary talent and unprecedented ratings. Premiering Saturday, September 29th in most syndicated markets nationwide, American Idol Rewind will feature an introduction from Season 2 winner Ruben Studdard, narration by runner-up Clay Aiken and the best never-before-seen clips and interviews to-date.

 

This year on American Idol Rewind, viewers will get to see all-new, exclusive interviews with over 30 contestants from Season 2 as they sit down and reveal what it was like to be a part of the American Idol experience. American Idol Rewind will catch up with Top 12 contestants — Ruben Studdard, Clay Aiken, Kimberley Locke, Josh Gracin, Trenyce (Cobbins), Carmen Rasmusen, Kimberly Caldwell, Rickey Smith, Corey Clark, Julia DeMato, Charles Grigsby and Vanessa Olivarez — as they reveal their personal take on what really happened during Season 2 and how they felt during the audition process and Hollywood Rounds.  Rewind will also highlight other Idol contestants who made it through to Hollywood, along with those who failed “spectacularly,” and will recap the episodes that helped secure everyone’s favorite series into television history.

 

In the September 29th premiere, viewers are greeted by Idol winner Ruben Studdard as he introduces the new season.  Viewers will then hear from runner-up Clay Aiken, as he guides us through all seven audition cities and looks back on where American Idol Season 2 began its new search for the next music superstar.  In New York City, Simon, Paula and Randy have high expectations, hoping the city that never sleeps will provide a wealth of talent.  Between the bad and the very bad, it doesn’t take long before the judges let the contestants know what awaits them in the audition room if they can’t deliver.  Some will make it through, others will head home and, in the tradition of American Idol, everyone will walk away with something to say.

 

American Idol Rewind is nationally syndicated and premieres on Saturday, September 29th.  Airtime varies by market; check local listings or visit http://www.tvguide.com/listings for more information.

 

American Idol Rewind is produced by American Idol producers FremantleMedia North America and 19 Entertainment and distributed by Tribune Entertainment.
