I was watching American Idol Rewind last night, and I wondering whether any Asian celebrities could make it onto that show. Say....Utada Hikaru? I don't know...What do you think?

The media seems to go for furthering the William Hung stereotype and hence why I don't watch those shows.

She already has a music career. Why would she want to get on AI?

& no, I highly doubt any Asian celebrity could make it onto American Idol, unless they were actually an American. And even then, I don't see why they would want to - they're already famous if they're a celebrity.

On their website, you can find a list of rules for those wanting to audition. Among those rules are:
You must be a legal US citizen or a permanent US resident.
You must not have any of the following: a talent agent/manager, a recording contract, an acting &/or modeling contract, a merchandising agreement, various other contracts.

So, no. I don't believe we'll be seeing any Asian celebrities auditioning any time soon.

Well, it is called American Idol. Idk if they are going to let celebrities from Asia preform. Of course why would they want to? (I don't like American Idol)

Even if they could most famous American artists wouldn't make it past the first screening so I don't think they would get far.

She's an American. According to wikipedia, she was born, raised, & currently lives in Hawaii.

But if they're a celebrity, then they'd have some sort of contract or agent already.

what has that got to do with citizenship? they terminate early, fly over here, apply and a few years later, bam. they become yankees.
