Kelly Clarkson has had several hits which landed in the Billboard Top 100 for 2004, 2005, 2006, et cetera, but none of the others "idols" have made it.
Wow, someone had better tell Kellie Pickler and Carrie Underwood that they haven't "made it" yet. Hmmm... I'll bet they think having #1 songs and headlining tours actually means something.
