A childhood fantasy many of us may recall is our desire to be famous

A childhood fantasy many of us may recall is our desire to be famous. Shows like American Idol gives young people today the opportunity to make dreams possible. This article explains the three qualities you must have or develop to become an idol. You need talent, personality and the right attitude. When you understand the importance of these qualities and use them, you then will boost your chances of turning a dream into reality.

Having talent or a good singing voice is what the judges are looking for and what the idol viewing fans will vote for. It doesn’t matter who you are, how you look, what you wear… If you got a voice and know how to use it, that then is what really counts.

Anyone who has watched American Idol for more than one season knows that having a good voice isn’t enough. You need to make the right song choices. That starts with knowing your genre, whether it be country, rock, blues, etc., and sticking with it. The idol fans can easily sense how some performers cross over to a genre that isn’t his or her style and what comes out seems forced. When making the song choices, you need to sing a song the gives the audience a chance to hear your full range and lets your personality appear.

Ever notice how some contestants think they have a good sounding voice and believe it? But when they start to sing, the judges tell them how bad their performance was and they still deny it? Now compare that to the personality of someone who does have a nice voice. How do they act? They don’t brag about how good of a singer they are. They appear to be very humble.

The contestants who brag about their singing performance are the ones with the obnoxious personalities. You only can tolerate anyone who behaves or talks in that manner for a very short time if at all. The contestants who appreciate the opportunity American Idol gives them are the ones with the likeable personality. You will hear Simon make comments about how «likable,» a contestant is while he judges his or her performance.

When the judges make a comment about a performance, they will tell you what you did wrong or just tell you they didn’t like it. You’ll shouldn’t take the criticism personally and become too defensive on the camera. Arguing with the judges about why you chose a particular song and why you sang it the way you did won’t help you get more votes.

If you have the right attitude, you’ll treat each comment or criticism from the judges as something to learn and grow from. They are looking for people who don’t have an ego and are easy to work with. If you think they are wrong abut your performance and that they don’t know what they are talking about, then why aren’t you already recording your songs and signing autographs?

You now know what it takes to become an American Idol. You know that having talent isn’t enough. You know that having the right personality and the right attitude is equally important. Only when you truly understand and practice these qualities will you have a chance at becoming the next idol.
