Could Justin Have Been on Idol Himself?

We all know that Bieber was found by posting videos of him performing on YouTube and Scooter Braun happened across him and the rest is history. But, what would have happened if he had not been found on YouTube? What if the site had been down for a minute when Scooter was cruising through videos and he never saw Bieber? Would he still be here today?


With Bieber giving his voice over to the “Idol Gives Back” episode, one has to wonder if he ever considered auditioning for the show. He told reporters that he and his Mom used to watch the show [American Idol] and that he used to say, “I could get on there.” But, since the boy was found in another way, he never actually had the chance to do it. In his own words, “This [being discovered on YouTube] was faster.” But, it begs the question: Would he have won if he had been on American Idol?

That’s all speculative. He obviously would have gone far and most likely would have made a record, but the truth is, I don’t think I would have wanted to see him restricted like these American Idol stars are. By being an independent signed to a record label, he is able to do more of his own things and work the way he wants to work. But, if it’s a way of getting into the industry, I can understand him wanting to, especially if he hadn’t been discovered.

But, back to the question…I don’t know if he would have won. It’s possible, but then again, there is so much talent on the show and they tend to have an idea of what they’re looking for before the show even begins. So, they gear voices that they like toward it. Would Bieber have been that? Possibly, his voice is doing great things for Island. But, would he have been the winner?

I think, honest to God (as much as I love Bieber’s music) that he would have gone far, but might not have won. He would, though, have gotten a record deal because his voice is music and record capable. He can make CDs. He can make money. What do you think, though? Would he have won on American Idol if he hadn’t been found on YouTube?

Voice Troubles for Bieber

The one thing about Bieber’s music that has been so successful is that he has the ability to hit higher notes on his register. In other words, he can hit notes that are in higher octaves. These notes are a nice addition to his songs. However, a question that has gone through my mind as well as, I am sure, his record producer’s mind is what happens when he continues to go through puberty and his voice begins to deepen?

Apparently, that’s going on right now. According to him, his voice is cracking—something all men can remember occurring in their lives—and that is forcing him to relook at the songs that he performs live. He’s reported to have sat down with his voice coach to work through and see if there was a way to get those high notes hit without damaging his vocal chords or, if instead, they should go another route.

According to Bieber, “we have to lower the keys [of baby] when I sing live.” This is not an uncommon occurrence. He started and his voice was not ready to crack, but with all of his singing, it brought on the cracking. That’s natural and expected. However, the big question that this leaves people is: will he be able to continue being a success?

I don’t see why not. His albums are selling like mad. He can’t even hear himself sing in the monitors because the 75,000 fans he performs to are screaming so loud. He is reported to have asked his friends how he did and they replied, “I have no idea, all we heard was screaming.” So, people obviously love him.

But, more than that, he’s just damn good. His voice deepening up a bit or even becoming a little raspy won’t change his music too much. He might have to change the way he performs and might have to develop a new style, but we’ve heard him in numerous different styles. Remember, he sang a Stevie Wonder song for President Obama and he was part of the We Are the World 25 performance. So, he has the ability to adapt his voice.

What do you think, though? Are Justin’s voice troubles going to be the end to his career or will he just adapt and overcome? I know my opinion!
