We already confirmed previously in our exclusive American Idol spoilers that the 2013 American Idol winner will release an album within an astounding six weeks of the finale, and now there is news that we’ll be able to buy Kree Harrison and Candice Glover’s singles (to debut on tonight’s performance show) on iTunes right after the winner is crowned on Thursday! FOX likes to strike while the iron is hot, but this could cause third degree burns!

The former American Idol winners have had to wait about five months to release their debut albums, as in the case of Phillip Phillips, who released his hugely successful CD The World From the Side of the Moon in November of 2012.

The powers that be pulling the strings at American Idol seem to want to capitalize on their biggest asset hardcore this season  producing stars. Right down to their new slogan “Others dream, Idol delivers” the producers have been making an effort to put the highlight on the ways this show is more successful than other shows, particularly The Voice.

And yet, with rumors swirling for years about the grueling schedules these hopefuls already keep, doesn’t it almost seem cruel for them to add the pressure to write and record while rehearsing, etc.?

What do you think about this super fast release date? Will you buy Kree and/or Candice’s single?
