  1. This quiz looks like a lot of fun. Good Luck to all who try to answer the questions. I recognize the names because they are from Season 5, but since I know very little about anything Idol, I would flunk this test. Cute idea

  2. I was interested in only one contestant that year. I haven’t got a clue to the answers. Thanks for the guiz. Have the next one be all about Taylor.
