Did American Idol ruin music, or did it make music better?
Personally, I only watched one season all the way thru(The year Daughtry was in it). Most of the winners IMO, have annoying music, and have brought the quality of music in general way down.
Now, people like Arianna Grande, are considered talented(yes I know she wasn't a AI contestant, she's from Nickelodeon).
I think AI helped ruin music. Maybe since it's gone, you'll see real musicians again.
