Buzzfeed reached out to American Idol alums

…to find out what the show meant to them, and got some 58 responses. Here’s a part of Jason’s:

I have been watching this season with my daughter, who is four and a half. […] When I was on there, I was not married, had no kids, and really, as I look around at my family now and the life that I have, it really is all because of American Idol. […] What an incredible opportunity I had to be able to make a great living doing what I love and be able to support my growing family by playing music.
