Who cares.

They are only "Idols" because the TV tells you they are. Now the media is backing up the network's propaganda machine.

Hendrix was an Idol. These people are jokes, a product, nothing more.

was the point? This article didn't introduce us to them. It contained no information other than to promote Fox's scheduling. Thanks for nothing, yet again, IndyStar.

It wasn't real obvious and you can thank them for that, but if you look again (and I thought the same thing at first, by the way) the names of the folks are links to more info about them; click on them.

Way to go Gannett. Let's keep cheapening the product by leading with stories like this while: a) college students in a neighboring state are getting gunned down b) our state and city wrestle with property taxes c) we teeter on the verge of recession.
I though these kinds of stories were the reason why you invented indy.com .

"They are also the first Hoosiers to make it this far in the hit reality show on Fox, which debuted in 2002."

This statement is not actually true. David Radford, a contestant from season 5, went to middle school at Perry Meridian Middle School, he moved out of the state right before he was to begin high school. Radford made it into the top 20.

Indiana needs some good news! Good luck to each of these Indiana Idols. Have a great time, enjoy the ride...and show everyone that Indiana does produce its own home grown talent, not just "borrow" them from other states to play sports here.

The young woman from Mulberry should stop now and sign a recording contract. Dissing Idol could only help launch a career for her fanbase.

Yes...And saying Radford is a Hoosier is like saying Jeff Gordon is also. Come on. I was born in Ohio, but we moved to Indiana when I was three. And except for time in the military, Indiana has been home. I am a Hoosier, not a Buckeye.

Yea, why not just dwell on the negative stories and leave all the positive out. Geesh.

Yes, there is a lot of very important "real" news out there, some tragic. I don't see why taking a few minutes to read about something good happening for fellow hoosiers is such a bad thing. Bad things happen everyday, lets not forget to look for the good when we can. Congrats to the finalists from Indiana !!

Some of these people have sold millions and millions of CD's. That's no joke. All singers can be classified as such. YOU HAVE TO BE DISCOVERED SOMEWHERE. Where were you discovered? In the nut house.

What do you think The Colts, Pacers, etc are? Products. And for that matter, radio DJ's, weathermen, newscasters..are NOT "celebrities", they are simply DJ's, and people who tell us the weather and news, nothing more. "News" is defined as a story untold or retold with new information, both of interest to certain segments of society, not all segments. Much of this "news" isn't news, isn't entertaining, isn't relevant to your life or mine, but it is to others for whatever floats their boat. Speaking of propaganda, Americans should start thinking for themselves instead of listening to all the media networks form opinions and then preach those "opinions" as a politically moral compass to vote by? MSNBC has so many opinion shows (like Nancy Grace, Chris Matthews of Hardball, Dan Abrams, etc, etc, etc)and incite hatred, cynicism, self righteousness making millions off of their rubbish.
