Judas-Priest-American-Idol-Finale

If there’s anything that’s true about reality TV, it is the fact that it is very popular, and if you are on one of them, you stand to make a lot of money as a winner. Recently, the Forbes magazine released a list of American Idol alumni and their earnings, and according to the list, Carrie Underwood and Adam Lambert were found to be the top earners. The calculation of their earnings was made on a pre-tax basis before taking into account the percentages that their agents and managers also make from it all.

It’s no surprise to see such high figures when it comes to the singer’s earnings because American Idol itself is considered to be “a money-making machine” by its producers and everyone involved. In the words of Adam Kluger, the president of the brand partnership company, “It’s like having the Super Bowl every week.”

Among the list of highest paid singers of American Idol, Carrie Underwood tops the list with $ 20 million with Adam Lambert and Chris Daughtry behind at $ 6 million each. The rest of the people on this list include names such as Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Clay Aiken and Catherine McPhee.

If that’s not enough, in not only being at the top of this list, Carrie Underwood is the winner of five Grammy awards and recently made her debut in the movie Soul Surfer while the two tied in the second spot has played 116 concerts over the last 12 months for their earnings with a strong crowd turnout.
