So first things first. If you are like me and have no vocal abilities and can't keep a steady tone, you are in luck. There is a nice method to getting perfect scores on American Idol and all you need is duct tape.
My television has speakers on the front, so i taped the mic down facing the speaker. After that, I turned down the music track, effects, and players voice. I also turned up the song vocal volume up all the way.
From there all I had to do was start the songs up and let it go! Now what is odd is that some songs didn't get perfect the first time I tried it, but I immediately started it over & got perfect (?).
The only song this won't work on is the beginning of 'Black Velvet' during the 'mmm' part. It is not difficult, so sing that part, pause it, and tape it back up.
I won't refer to using this method anymore in the guide, so those of you who don't this type of tv can get through it as well. Here we go:
American Idol50 Win the full American Idol tournament at any difficulty level
Like it says, this can be done on any difficulty. I would recommend doing it on easy for 2 reasons. 1. If you are just starting on the game, it will be much more simple. 2. You are going to be doing a LOT of tournaments & singing if you are going for the full 1000 pts. so save it
There are 18 rounds. You don't have to get perfect every round to advance. Also, if you do get voted out, don't worry, you can redo the round.
World Idol80 Win the full American Idol tournament at Expert difficulty level
The same as 'American Idol' achievement, just on expert difficulty. Remember, you don't have to be perfect every time to advance and if you fail, just redo the round
Golden Ticket10 Pass the auditions phase in single player
You will get this when going for the 'American Idol' achievement after singing your first song in the full tournament as long as you don't do terrible. Easy achievement.
The Great American Songbook20 Sing all the songs on the disc once - full song only
There are 40 songs on the disc. Sing each one and you get the achievement. Note that the first 2 rounds of the full American Idol tournament will not count towards this since you only sing a portion of each song. You don't have to get any certain score, just don't get boo'ed off and it yours
American Sensation30 Win 20 American Idol single player tournaments
There are four different tournament types: mini (4 songs), short (8 songs), medium (12 songs), and full (18 songs). You can choose whatever combination you want, as long as you win. Note that online tournaments do not count towards this achievement
It Sounds Like a Lot20 Score 1 million points (cumulative in any mode)
If you score perfect (or 'Diamond') on a songs, you get 100,000 points. Get perfect on 10 songs in any mode and you'll get the achievement. You can check your score by going to 'Extras' under the Main Menu and clicking on 'Stats' Downloaded songs also count towards your score.
It Didn't Take That Long50 Score 10 million points (cumulative in any mode)
Similar to the previous achievement. If you only sing perfect, this will take 100 songs.
Dedication100 Score 50 million points (cumulative in any mode)
This one is gonna take a while. You're looking at 500 songs if you only sing perfect. Unless you REALLY REALLY like singing, pull this out at a party and have karaoke time. Your drunk friends will enjoy it and they'll also be working towards your achievement
Girl’s Best Friend100 Get a perfect score throughout a full American Idol tournament
This is best done on easy. Just sing it through and if you mess up, restart it. It's not as difficult as it sounds. If you don't know if you've messed up, check your final score. A perfect song will score you 100,000 points every time.
Headbanger10 Compete offline in a battle Head to Head game
This requires two mics. If you have 2 mics, just start up a battle with one mic not being used, sing in the other and viola
Premiership10 Compete offline in an Arcade League game
Just the Two of Us10 Play an offline Co-op Duet
Requires 2 mics. If you have two, grab a friend and select a duet. Once the song ends, you will get the achievement

Well, the TV trick works almost perfectly for me. I have to adjust the mic in order to get the Diamond status, but it makes the game super easy. I think it all depends on the tv and the speaker location. If you have surround sound you have to turn it off and make it just stereo to make it work.

For some reason I can't seem to unlock the why don't you marry him then achievement, even though I've been getting at least platinum on like every song so far in my current tournament, and been in the "Great" range when ending the song, and Simon is giving me amazing compliments. Any idea why?

TV Mic Trick Works! Black Velvet Killing me
I Tried the TV- mic trick before reading this guide, and it worked perfectly!
I've diamonded all songs EXCEPT Black Velvet!.
The Umm part at the beginning of the song is very difficult, the Mic-trick always gets (Ok or Good!) if their own singer can't get Perfect how can we
Tried to sing it without hope! Any ideas?
Is there songs with-out music on the net? so i can get Balck Velvet and play it?
