Each season American Idol delivers on a promise whose epic scope is unparalleled in the annals of competition, and which has reshaped the very idea of celebrity: to take an unknown dreamer from the middle of America and turn him or her into a genuine star. It has become not only the biggest show on television, but the biggest force in all of entertainment; its alumni dominate the recording charts and Broadway, win Academy Awards and sweep up Grammys by the dozen. American Idol: The Last Empire will chronicle the triumphs and travails, the harrowing backstage drama, and the nail-biting onstage battles that built this revolutionary show. Through the stories of the people who created the show, starred in it, and kept it atop the pop culture pyramid, this book will be the first to take America behind the curtain and tell what has really been happening on the world's most watched and speculated about stage. Our book will take readers into the audition rooms and the contestants' dorms, and will be with the contestants as they take those first steps onto that cold, empty stage. Each chapter will tell the story of one season from Idol's history through the perspective of a different player in the show's constellations, from its star judges, to the producers, to the singers whose careers began on the Idol stage to those just outside the tent.
