• Welcome to Our Idol Rules

    So, here it is... Our Idol Rules.

    You see, like millions of TV viewers out there we have been intently watching American Idol since season #1. And all the while we've been struck by one thing... it's not the talent of the performers, it's not the brilliant simplicity of the show it is... the gigantic mistakes made by so many of the people that try out.

    So many of these mistake are so simple... yet contestants make them over and over. And since we've grown tired of watching the contestants repeat these mistakes over and over we decided to list them here for all to see.

    So browse around, add your ideas too...just send them to ouridolrules@gmail.com.

Rule #12 – Your favorite song isn’t our favorite song

Just because a song is your favorite song of all time, doesn’t make it a good song choice for you. If it doesn’t showcase your vocal talent it’s not a good song choice. See Rule #9 for more clarification.

Rule # 9 – Song choice, song choice, song choice!

Judy GarlandIf you are considering singing “Somewhere over the rainbow”, “Unchained Melody”, or “Amazing Grace” force yourself to pick a different song. We’ve heard them before. We’ve heard them belted out by winners and divas. We’ve heard them sung better than you can sing them. We don’t want to hear them again.

Song choice isn’t really that hard. Just follow these guidelines:

  1. Pick something that everyone watching has actually heard of.
  2. Pick something that everyone watching hasn’t heard a million times on the show.
  3. Pick something that showcases your voice.
