The template should include everything (generally speaking) related to American Idol; not just everything you like[edit]

I'm sorry, but this just seems, to me anyway, rather unneccesary. This creates clutter in my opinion, and too much of it. The fact that you've argued that the template should have everything related to the show will just make said clutter worse. I find that I can't read or navigate my way around the template without getting headache pain. Again, I'm sorry, I do not intend to cause fights or edit wars, and I want to maintain a good relationship with the people who edit on the site. I respect you and your decisions even though I don't agree with them at times.--Cartoon Boy (talk) 7:00, 1 April, 2009

Mandisa[edit]

Now that Mandisa has won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for her album, Overcomer, she now meets the requirements laid out in previous discussions, that can be found in the archived talk page, and I will add her to the template.

Initial visibility

To set the template's initial visibility, the |state= parameter may be used:

  • |state=collapsed: {{American Idol|state=collapsed}} to show the template collapsed, i.e., hidden apart from its title bar
  • |state=expanded: {{American Idol|state=expanded}} to show the template expanded, i.e., fully visible
  • |state=autocollapse: {{American Idol|state=autocollapse}}
    • shows the template collapsed to the title bar if there is a {{navbar}}, a {{sidebar}}, or some other table on the page with the collapsible attribute
    • shows the template in its expanded state if there are no other collapsible items on the page

If the |state= parameter is not set, the template's initial visibility is taken from the |default= parameter in the template. For this template, that currently evaluates to autocollapse.

Adding Haley Reinhart to list of "other alumni" because of her work with Postmodern Jukebox and her cover of "Can't Help Falling in Love" in the Extra Gum commercials that became a viral sensation. Also because of her voice acting work in the Netflix original television show "F is for Family." 172.12.152.102 (talk) 22:14, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
