Kady Malloy: The Professional Background

by at . Comments

Another impressive American Idol audition, another growing controversy.

On the heels of Kristy Lee Cook moving on to Hollywood - despite signing a record contract in 2001 - it turns out that the (VERY) early American Idol favorite also has a professional background.

Kady Malloy came out with an album a few years ago, although it's been whitewashed from the Internet, likely by the Idol Powers That Be.

A post on the MySpace blog of indie music store Amie Street sums up Malloy as such: "Kady Malloy's powerful voice and Hip Hop-influenced pop songs bring to mind a cross between Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, and The Pussycat Dolls.

Kady's been working with Nick Trevisick, a producer and writer for artists like Mandy Moore and Natalie Imbruglia, so remember: you heard her on Amie Street first!"

So, what do you think, fans? Do you mind that so many American Idol contestants this season have a professional resume?

It sucks that the show is now taking professionals. I will only root for the young ones. I think this is the beginning of the end of American Idol.
