Indian Idol is in its sixth season and unlike its counterpart in the US, it has not produced a single singer / performer / artist who went on to make it big!
While American Idol has given artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia Barrino, Carrier Underwood and Adam Lambart, who have actually made a name for themselves in the music and entertainment field after their stint with American Idol!
While hardly anyone from Indian Idol has made it big in bollywood...most of them have ended up anchoring shows or participating in other musical shows or at the best, be a supporting part of stage shows meant for the more popular bollywood singers and performers!
The only contestants I can remember from Indian Idol who have earned some name for themselves are Abhijeet Sawant, Rahul Vaidya, Meiyang Chang and now Shreeram. None of them have got a breakthrough in bollywood (which is actually the litmus test to be a successful singer in our country) or done a successful album on their own!
Is there something essentially wrong with our version of Idol that it hasn't been able to produce one single, successful artist till date? Or is there an overkill of these singing shows which dilutes the quality of participants? Or are these shows just hogwash to garner more TRP's?
Please share your views.

abhijit sawant earns 4-5 laks per stage show. monali thakur has sung some memorable bollywood songs. n.c. karunya is a superplayback singer down south. there are a whole lot of successful idol contestants.

U have mentioed Meyang Chang is very successful ...but for whay...for his acting and dancing capability..not for singing...

Monali Thakur & Antara Mitra from II2 r very successful playback singer in bollywood...they have laid voices  for more than 10-15 songs each for bollywood...  monali has done lots of bengali film songs also...karunya from II2 is also a big playback singer in Telugu film industry...amit paul from II3 has done a beautiful romantic number in 'Luck by Chance'...Emon form II3 has done lots of songs in bengali films also...what else do u expect from II2 contestant where the competition is tooo tough...if u compare with SRGMP/VOI ...nobody from these programs have not made it don't blame  II2...enjoy the concept and singing of our generation next...
