Rule #14 – Know the difference between “unique” and “memorable”

A lot of contestants make the mistake of trying too hard to be “unique”. What they don’t understand is the huge difference between “unique” and “memorable”.

For example, Sanjaya was unique. The problem was that the only thing that made him unique was a wacky hair-do. At the end of the day, no matter how unique you are, you aren’t going to win.

On the other hand, past winners like Kelly Clarkson, Fantasia, and Carrie Underwood were memorable. They were memorable because they were each able to combine a compelling story line with an outstanding voice. They didn’t rely on trying to be memorable, they just were memorable. And that’s why they won.
