American Idol Gets Its 400th Number One Song

Fox

The “American Idol” franchise has earned its 400th #1 song on the charts.  No, it’s not Kelly Clarkson.  No, it’s not Carrie Underwood.  As a matter of fact, when I tell you who it is you’ll say, “Oh, I forgot about her.”

Season 5 of “American Idol” remains the highest-rated season in the show’s history.  It was the season that featured Chris Daughtry, Kathareine McPhee, Kellie Pickler, Bucky Covington, Elliott Yamin, and winner, Taylor Hicks.  Oh, and Mandisa.  Remember her? Mandisa was eliminated during country week and finished in 9th place.  Mandisa has gone on to have a very successful Christian music career.

Mandisa has released five studio albums, two of them hitting #1 on the U.S. Christian music chart.  Her song “Overcomer” is #1 for the 8th week on both Christian Digital Songs and Christian/Gospel Digital Songs, therefore “Overcomer” is the 400th #1 song by an American Idol contestant.

Idol returns January 15, 2014 with judges Keith Urban, Harry Connick Jr. and Jennifer Lopez.
