Idolator Imagines The Top 3 Idols’ Debut Albums

We all know at this point that the winners of American Idol aren’t the only contestants who are pretty much guaranteed to release an album after the season’s run. Runners-up are always expected to drop an album around the same time as the champ (and in some cases, they do even better on the charts than the singer America voted for). Since even those who get the bronze have a good shot at scoring a record deal, it’s safe to assume we’ll be getting original tunes from all of Season 10’s Top 3 — Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina and Haley Reinhart — in the not so distant future, no matter what order they place.

But what what kind of albums can we expect? We think we know — check out our Photoshop magic in our gallery as we pontificate about the Top 3’s possible LPs.
