Getting the chance to be a part of American Idol is a pretty sweet gig, but exactly how sweet may render you speechless.

Each contestant who makes it into the top 12 is guaranteed a check amounting to several thousand dollars. And, those who are lucky enough to be in the top five can expect to earn roughly $100,000 from their time on the show.

As if that wasn’t enough, they have an opportunity to garner four times that amount if the producers offer them a record deal.
