Competition encourages a person to strive towards greatness with the intention of achieving dominance. A person competes with others in various fields in which he/she is good, such as education, sports, music, dance etc. The person demonstrates his ultimate capacity in the specific field in relation to his competitor/s. The result comes out with an order of performances with the leader standing first in the winning list. The highest scoring participant is declared the winner or the Idol. The Idol becomes an icon that people recognize and later on accept as their role model.

American Idol a concept
American Idol is an annual American televised singing competition that started on June 11, 2002. The concept was taken from the UK reality program Pop Idol. American Idol is a part of the Idol franchise. The objective of the program is to seek out and to discover the best young singer in the country. The talented singers are scrutinized through a series of examinations and make it to the final rounds of the competition via the approval of a panel of judges. The nationwide auditions are also a part of the judgment as verdict. The latter stages of this competition are wholly determined by public voting.
The American Idol competition show has three great judges who frequently critique the contestants’ performances in order to facilitate the voting. Randy Jackson the record producer and bass player; Paula Abdul a former pop star; and Simon Cowell a UK producer and manager are the three judges of American Idol. Ryan Seacrest is the current host of the competition show.
American Idol has been telecast on the Fox Network in the United States, on Fox Network and CTV in Canada and ITV 2 in the United Kingdom. The Idol series was first created by Simon Fuller, manager of the Spice Girls and S Club 7 and developed by Simon Jones of Thames Television. The directors of the show are Bruce Gowers (director of Queen’s original “Bohemian Rhapsody” video), Nigel Lythgoe (a judge on So You Think You Can Dance), Simon Fuller (creator) and Ken Warwick (Gladiators and Grudge Match). Apart from American cities, American Idol has been broadcast to over 100 nations outside of the United States.
