then they get citizenship.


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.


It doesn't have anything to do with citizenship. On American Idol's website, they have a list of rules and one of them states that you cannot have any sort of contract or an agent/manager.

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


I know what you mean. I got tired of watching all those kind of shows just because one Asian tried and didn't succeed. It doesn't mean all Asians sing....badly. I have so many friends that sing really well

I dont see why an already established singer who's well known in Asia would bother with something as trival as American Idol. It's kinda a farce nowadays anway.

Are you trying to ask....among the existing Asian celebrities, IF they were not already famous and signed to some company, would they make it on American Idol?

It really depends on which celebs since there's a wide range where they fall when it comes to talent, appeal, charisma, etc. Some artist can't really sing but they are famous. Some can sing but they wouldn't be appealing enough to catch attention. So you can't really get a simple yes or no answer.

I think in general (not speaking of Asian celebs), if there was an super attractive, charismatic, and TALENTED Asian singer with fluent English abilities, that person might have a chance. But that person would need to work harder than your average American contestant.
