Since American Idol debuted in 2002, there have been over two dozen country contestants, but only two winners. This You Think You Know Country? answers the question ... "What the heck happened to them all?"
The last remaining country American Idol finalist will perform on Thursday night. Season 14 mentor Scott Borchetta tells Taste of Country that Maddie Walker still doesn't know what put her in the hospital for several days last weekend, but it wasn't a ruptured appendix.
American Idol mentor Scott Borchetta is in a difficult position, but it's one he's familiar with. Each week moving forward he'll work with the remaining Idol finalists, helping them choose their songs and how to perform. One misstep could mean the end of the run for a talented artist.
It's not clear if 'American Idol' contestant Samuel Prince earned praise for his singing, but his acting was pretty good. Harry "Henry" Connick, Jr. does a nice job in this video, as well ... maybe too nice a job for Keith Urban's liking.
'American Idol' kicks off a new season Wednesday, with Keith Urban once again representing country music in a judge's chair. Tim McGraw considers Urban a friend, and insists his buddy is a great representation of the genre.
