N.C. biggest 'Idols': Where are they now?

The answer is: on an "American Idol" 10th anniversary compilation album set to be released March 15.

"American Idol 10th Anniversary - The Hits" features songs from winners and finalists including Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Charlotte's Fantasia Barrino, Greensboro's Daughtry and Raleigh's Clay Aiken.

Among the tracks on the CD, announced this week, are Aiken's "Invisible," Barrino's "When I See U" and Daughtry's "Home," a single that went platinum in 2006.

Daughtry -- who finished fourth in Season 5 -- last performed here in June 2010, while Barrino's most recent Charlotte concert was in November (read the review of the Season 3 winner's show here). Season 2 runner-up Clay Aiken will perform at the Belk Theater in Charlotte on Feb. 23.

"Idol" recently launched its 10th season, with new judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez joining Randy Jackson at the table. It'll be awhile before we find out whether anyone with Carolina ties makes the finals, but there are certainly hopefuls, including N.C. te
ens Scotty McCreery and Victoria Huggins. McCreery, of Garner, and Huggins, of St. Pauls, are both 16 and have both advanced to the Hollywood rounds.

Oh, and here's the full track list for "American Idol 10th Anniversary - The Hits":

1. Kelly Clarkson - "Since U Been Gone"
2. Ruben Studdard - "Superstar"
3. Clay Aiken - "Invisible"
4. Fantasia - "When I See U"
5. Carrie Underwood - "Before He Cheats"
6. Taylor Hicks - "Takin' It To The Streets"

"Where are they now?"...well we all hope Fantasia is in school so her arse can learn to read a sign. I don't know how they make it through life...I really don't!

DaddyPHATsack...first off perhaps you should be in school with Fantasia, because she had already gotten her GED, so I hope that she can read. As for you since you didn't know that she had received it already I wonder if you can read or hear...LOL

This album is the soundtrack to hell. Talentless people singing banal songs.

Right now Jordin Sparks is in Dallas, TX for the Super Bowl working with Allstate to advocate safe teen driving in a program called “X the TXT”. The program is aimed at preventing teen drivers from texting behind the wheel. To learn more about the program visit the Allstate Insurance Digital Newsroom.
