We all know that American Idol has been a pop culture phenomenon since it first aired, way back in June of 2002.

For an unprecedented eight consecutive years, from 2003–2011, it was the number one television show in the United States.

It also introduced us to big stars, like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, and Chris Daughtry.

Maine, you can tryout for American Idol on August 18th! Who knows, maybe you will be standing in front of Katy, Lionel and Luke, singing your heart out.
