Of all these shows how many singers became mega stars?
Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, and that's it.
Jennifer Hudson as well, and she wasn't even that close to being the winner (I think she went out 7th?).
Another change I've noticed is that that they don't do what I call the "double blind" auditions anymore. This is where they hide the identity of the singer from the viewers until after the chairs have turned or the performance is over. They didn't do it that often, but I still looked forward to it and thought it was fun. I noticed that last season they didn't do it at all, and it looks like they probably won't this season either.
