American Idol judges Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez, and Keith Urban onstage during "American Idol" XIV Grand Finale at Dolby Theatre on May 13, 2015 in Hollywood, California.

I gotta be honest. I don’t watch American Idol. I’ve caught a few episodes over the years here and there, but have never watched a season beginning to end. But you can’t deny the stars the show has created. Carrie Underwood fills stadiums. Kelly Clarkson has her own TV show. Jennifer Hudson won an Academy Award. Adam Lambert joined Queen. So when the show pumps up a contestant by saying this is the biggest star the judges have ever seen, that’s a pretty big statement. It’s also going to put a lot of pressure on this kid. For those of us (including yours truly) who missed it, here’s the clip from last night’s season debut of American Idol. Is Louis Knight on this level?
