The return of American Idol in 2018 seemed to be accompanied by more post-show releases by former standouts from the show.

No fewer than six former Idol champs released major new projects in 2018, and we also got new albums or EPs from several past runners-up.

Here’s a rundown of albums and EPs released by former Idol standouts during 2018. If I’ve missed anyone, let me know by commenting below.
