'American Idol' Finalists Net Big Bucks from Disney

The highlight for me in this article is where they talk about American Idol winner Kris Allen and the big bucks he has earned from various companies including Disney.

In addition to a generous $350,000 advance for his first album (not including recording costs), half of which he got after the show ended and the rest when he finished his self-titled debut, Allen was paid $100,000 to help promote “The American Idol Experience” attraction at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and another $100,000 for spending a day filming dialogue for the attraction and taping vocals for the Walt Disney World Christmas Parade TV show. He also reportedly earned another $100,000 advance on royalties from a three-year merchandising contract, which allows 19 Entertainment to use his image to promote the show and related products.
