Contestants

Just one contestant thus far, Pia Toscano, has finished with a 5-star average rating, though Kelly Clarkson,Latoya London, and Melinda Doolittle all came close. If you take away London's and Doolittle's lowest-rated performance, they'd both have turned the trick. Which makes it all the more ironic that it was the same song that did them both in.

Note that several one-and-done semifinalists are near the top of the list, along with one who was two-and-done and surely ranks among the most "robbed" AI contestants ever. Someday in the hopefully-distant future, when Paula Abdul shuffles off this mortal coil, she will arrive at the pearly gates where St. Peter will be waiting. (Yes, we're aware that Paula is Jewish, but we mean no disrespect; it's just the standard metaphor for heaven. Work with us here.) St. Peter will glance over his pedestal, shake his head sadly, and pose to her the one question she dreads more than any other: "What on earth were you thinking when you chose Leah LaBelle over Suzy Vulaca?" True, for all we know, if Vulaca had made the Top 12 in AI3, she might've sung "Muskrat Love" right out of the gate and fallen so far on this list you'd have to page all day to find her. As it is, her 75+ rating will keep her near the top of the rankings for, ahem, all eternity.

Through the first eleven seasons, only three finalists have completed their Idol runs with a dreaded 1-star average. Two were from Season One and one from Season Six. We don't think it'll take you too many guesses on that last one.
