President Obama Urges People to Vote on 'Idol' Finale (Video)

President Barack Obama kicked off the American Idol series finale on Thursday (April 7) with a taped message urging the country to vote.

“Congratulations to everyone at American Idol on an incredible 15 season run. This show transformed television. It inspired young artists and captivated audiences across the county. And it taught America what it means to be pitchy,” the President said while kicking off his speech.

American Idol has achieved something else as well. For over a decade, this show has motivated millions of young Americans to vote, often and with enthusiasm,” Obama continued. “We should do the same in our lives as citizens of this country we love. Voting is the most fundamental and sacred right of democracy. I believe it should be almost as easy as voting on American Idol, and we’re working on that. But when we choose not to vote we surrender that right. We surrender our voice to someone else.”

“Not all of us can sing like Kelly Clarkson, but all of our voices matter,” he added. “This show reached historic heights, not only because Americans watched it, but because you participate din its success. And the same is true of America. We reach our full potential when every American participates. So go to Vote.gov and register to vote today.”
