American Idol creator Simon Fuller has personally declared that he, in partnership with 19 Entertainment and CKX inc. will manage the music careers of the show’s season 10 winner and runner up. This will be a particularly interesting move for Fuller, considering the now well established absence of former Idol music man Simon Cowell. Considering the fact that Cowell is no longer involved, and music distribution is now very publicly handled by Interscope Records, fans and the industry alike will be watching to take note of any noticeable changes in the Idol music making process.
It is important to mention, that wen it comes to music development, Fuller is far from a novice. Billboard magazine reports, that although he hasn’t been involved involved in the career of every artist to come out of the 10 year run of American Idol, Fuller has had a personal hand in the careers of Kelly Clarkson, David Cook, Jordan Sparks, Carrie Underwood, and Adam Lambert, who Billboard Reports to be the most successful “out the gate performing contestant turned artist to come from the show yet. Will his success continue? All we can do is stay tuned and find out.
