Which 'American Idol' rival will win the most showbiz awards?

March 26, 2009 | 12:34 pm

It doesn't matter if you think Adam Lambert or Matt Giraud will win "American Idol." Which of the current contestants will have the most triumphant career in future years? Who'll win the most show awards? Lil Rounds? Allison Iraheta?


Remember, Jennifer Hudson only came in seventh  in Season 3 of "American Idol," but went on to win the Oscar, Golden Globe, SAG, Critics Choice, BAFTA and New York Film Critics Circle awards for "Dreamgirls." She also won best R&B album at the recent Grammys for her debut disc "Jennifer Hudson."

Meantime, "American Idol" winners like Ruben Studdard and Taylor Hicks have proven to be real losers. Where are their careers?

Recently, Gold Derby asked our forum posters who they believe will emerge the true, ultimate winner of this year's "American Idol," regardless of the season's official scores. See their responses here.
