Reality competition shows like American Idol, The X Factor and The Voice have produced many megastars and music-fan favorites in the last 10 years. We narrowed this field down to the 32 greatest reality TV alums—contestants only, no judges or mentors or hosts—and split them up into four categories, Pop, Rock, Country and R&B.
