American Idol will release an album featuring the hits of some of their past winners and contestants, the Los Angeles Times reports.
The smash hit talent search, which is in its tenth season, became a nationwide phenomenon when Kelly Clarkson became its first winner. She went on to sell over ten million albums in the United States alone. Similar success followed many of the show's contestants who will be featured on the album, such as Fantasia (who appeared on Broadway in The Color Purple), Clay Aiken (who made his debut in Monty Python's Spamalot), and Jordin Sparks (who starred in In the Heights in late 2010).
The full track listing has been released as:
1. Kelly Clarkson - "Since U Been Gone"
2. Ruben Studdard - "Superstar"
3. Clay Aiken - "Invisible"
4. Fantasia - "When I See U"
5. Carrie Underwood - "Before He Cheats"
