does she really need a show like "the voice" to get her solo career off and running?? it's not like she doesn't have a resume and some talent to represent her ownself to get a label or contract. .personally i wouldn't want to get known because i won, or came in 2nd/3rd place on something like the voice/american idol cuz i think it cheapens it in many ways. .maybe this is just me because i don't take these shows too seriously or consider to be all that legit. .
Do you think Carrie Underwood/Kelly Clarkson/Daughtry/Philip Philips even are cheapened by their Idol success?
