What are they up to? 2009's top 5

2009's Idol season was one of the best seasons to ever air. It not only brought us a new Idol winner but it also brought the world a whole new set of talent to look forward to.
We'll take a look back at the top 5 and what they are up to in their careers now.

Kris Allen

When Kris Allen first showed his vocal talent during auditions there was immediately something special about him. He went onto develop into one of the most talented, authentic musicians the show has ever showcased. He not only performed one of the best performances with 'Heartless' he also showed America that simple talent is best when it transforms into star quality.
As 2009's Idol winner a lot was expected of him. While on the 2009 Idol Tour he began work on his debut album that was anticipated greatly. And finally on November 13th his album came out. He has both impressed and lived up to the Idol crown he won.

Adam Lambert

Adam Lambert was instantly recognized when he auditioned with his rendition of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. He was exciting, talented, bombastic, and altogether fabulous. Not only did he make his mark as Idol's most controversial contestant but he also showed he could put his Broadway vocals to good use, he showed he could put on a good show.
His album -that is set to release on November 23rd- will no doubt be the good time and fantastic music he showed the world when he graced the Idol stage.

Danny Gokey

Danny Gokey came onto Idol with an audition that easily brought emotions to the surface. Both his voice and story behind him taking a shot at the show easily won people over. He continuously kept up a good spirit showing people that faith can get you through anything. He was pure soul, with a touch of country that would soon become his future in music.
Having signed with RCA Nashville, Gokey has said his album is set to be released in early 2010. His music will no doubt show the faith he believes in as well as keeping the positive attitude he has come to be known for.

Allison Iraheta

Allison Iraheta surprised everyone with her strong vocals having just been 16 when she auditioned. She showed a different side of the female contestant, separating herself from everyone else. She had a style all her own and had a personality as likable as any of her performances.
With her album set to drop on Dec.1st 2009, she will no doubt show the public that no one can ever be too young to be a true star.

Matt Giraud

Being the first Idol contestant ever to have been saved by the judges, Matt Giraud showed a side of soul not many had seen on Idol before him. He was talented beyond the comparisons to other artists, and could play piano like no one else on the season. He chose songs that suited him and gave them a touch of his own style. He was at his best singing the hits from MoTown and singing the classic 'My Funny Valentine'.
Although Matt Giraud has yet to be signed he is set to sing on a duet album from Jazz singer Annie Wilson. Soon enough someone will sign him and he will be able to showcase his soul and jazz to the music world that is awaiting his kind of originality.
