Season 4

Winner: Carrie Underwood
A college student who had never been on airplane showed up at AMERICAN IDOL® auditions and is now a household name. Watching Carrie Underwood blossom from a small-town girl into a country powerhouse was the highlight of Season 4. This season also saw a transition with more rockers in the competition, as Constantine Maroulis and Bo Bice rocked their way into the finals.
