Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
It's the official book about the first season of TV's hottest superstar contest! Check out this glossy guide, jam-packed with info about American Idol, the blockbuster show that has quickly surged to the top of the ratings.

Including short bios of judges Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul, and Simon Cowell, plus information about hosts Ryan Seacrest and Brian Dunkleman, this 64-page book takes us through every phase of the contest -- right up to the selection of the ten finalists. "The Road to Hollywood" briefly introduces us to the best and worst contestants in the original seven cities, and we get to meet the 30 folks who made it onto the show. We discover who was chosen as winners for each group and who won the call-ins from across the country. Then we get up close and personal with each of the 10 finalists, with interviews and stats for each contestant.There's even information about the American Idol Sweeptakes, in which one lucky person can win a spot at the judges' table during the auditions for the following season!

This tell-all about "the search for a superstar" is an awesome book to have handy. Fans of the show will be scrambling for all the facts behind these celebrity wannabes -- and this book has it! Shana Taylor

    The search for a superstar Get's 5 star's from me.

    This is an excellent biography. Not only do you learn more about the contestants, but you can put yourself in their shoes. Have you ever wondered what it feels like to be judged on everything you do? The way you sang, the way you preformed on stage, even the way you dressed. Well Christina , Kelly, Tamyra, A.J, Justin, R.J, E.J, Jim, Ryan and Nikki do. You get to know how they felt, what hurt them, suprised them, dissapointed them, and made them smile. I say this is an awesome book that everyone SHOULD love.

    Kelly is My Idol!

    Kelly should be American Idol for the following reasons: She is an awesone singer, she has a big singing rage, which means she can sing high, low, and in between, and she doesn't brag about her voice. You should purchase a book about her because it is a one time chance!! She is going to become a millinare.
