Songs By Idol Alums Honored At 2011 BMI Pop Awards

A smattering of songs by American Idol alums were honored at the 2011 BMI Pop Music Awards Tuesday night. Season 8 finalists Kris Allen ("Live Like We're Dying") and Adam Lambert ("Whataya Want From Me") recorded songs that were honored as award-winning songs. Season 6 semifinalist Jared Cotter co-wrote two of Jay Sean's honored songs ("Do You Remember" and "Down"). Season 5 finalist Chris Daughtry co-wrote and recorded with his band Daughtry "Life After You". And former Idol judge Kara DioGuardi co-wrote award-winning songs by Cobra Starship ("Good Girls Go Bad") and Colbie Caillat ("I Never Told You").

I suppose I can also point out that Idol S10 regular will.i.am and producer Rodney Jerkins also won awards. I could also point out that it took seven people to write crappy songs like "Meet Me Halfway" and "Imma Be".  Just sayin'.
