Well...we understand that a lot of the people who won American Idol faded into obscurity pretty quickly, so we can't beat you up too badly for your score on this quiz. At least you got a couple easy ones, right?

Well, you didn't quite come in first, but you're far from last! Some of the stars that won American Idol went on to become huge names, while others faded into obscurity almost immediately. We're guessing it was some of the latter group that tripped you up. No big deal!
