>Curiously, Jennifer Hudson is missing from American Idol 10th Anniversary: The Hits, Volume 1. What we do get are songs from all nine champs—yes, even Taylor Hicks—as well as fellow finalists Clay Aiken, Chris Daughtry and Adam Lambert. Even without J-Hud, the collection shows that the ladies—led by Kelly Clarkson (“Since U Been Gone”) and Carrie Underwood (“Before He Cheats”)—have won the first decade in Idol recording careers. Sorry, fellas.
