Maybe two albums, but I agree. Stylistically, she's totally different, but Melinda reminds me of Anita Baker....stunning voice, but not marketable enough to have a long career with mass appeal. The under 25 demographic is the biggest buyer of music today, and how many 25 and unders are going to buy Melinda's music? They're much more likely to buy Jordin's music. Give Jordin a team of stylists, and the usual army of engineers, producers, and song writers that go into making a pop album today, and she can have a big hit album, maybe even a few. Blake might get one decent album out of this, but I can't imagine the largest part of his fan base being anyone other than the under 17 female demographic. Seriously, my teenage daughter and a hundred of her closest schoolmates thought he was hot when the season started, but he was "over" for them 6 weeks later. I don't see any of these three, or any of the past AI winners for that matter being popular 10 years from now other than possibly any which are country artists. The mainstream popular music industry just doesn't focus on building 10 year careers. It's simply not all that common for an artist to last that long today and I suspect a Billboard Top 40 chart from even 5 years ago is probably littered with artists who had a hit song or two and faded into oblivion.
