BACK DOOR BOY IN A FRONT DOOR WORLD
OUTSIDE OF SOCIETY - THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO BE

I'm not that impressed by a lot these days. Most things just fly right by me. I've never really been that hip on American Idol as I find the contestants for the most part to be trite and cliche in their choices and stylings, and the fact that they do (forthe most part) more karaoke than actual performance, they generally don't try to make the songs they perform their own. Also, they're just too 'cute' and that also bothers me. Enter Chris Daughtry.

...w h o a...

Not only did I do a serious double take as he's fucking gorgeous, but the other night he performed Fuel's "Hemhorrage (In My Hands)" and it fucking rocked balls. I mean seriously, I got chills. The guy is a consummate showman, he commanded your attention and totally worked the song in his own way. His voice is clear and just gravelly enough to stay clear but still have that thick, angry bite that keeps the edges sharp and prevents him from being boring. His vibrato is very deep and pronounced, sort of Rob Thomas only a lot less Stevie Nicksesque goaty, which turns me off. And again, there's the fact that he's hot.

In case you're not a fan of the show, in case you missed it, and in case I've piqued your curiousity enough, I have for you here both the MP3 of the performance and video. The video is an .AVI file, so if you have any trouble playing it you'll need to download and install the DIVX codec. Trust me, it's worth it just to swoon over him, but I really love this song and as much as I generally hate covers, he wore this one out. Good stuff.

I am totally with you on the whole American Idol experience. I have never watched it. Though I have caught a few of the really bad singers and I was amused that some people can live under the delusion that they have some talent.

Anyway, I happen to catch this guy by accident last week and I was like "holy hell, this IS a SINGER!" So yes, this guy has promise, he better win. Well, even if he doesn't he will get a record deal, no doubt.

Hehe...the guy i am currently dating kind of looks like him...its sweet!

And if he doesn't win, I will be incredibly angry. It outshines ALL the rest by a LARGE margin.

I've been watching American Idol all season, and I totally agree about Chris. He's awesome and I totally voted for him. :)

That was cool. He sounded like the original artist. It was very hard to tell the difference.

Thanks for posting this! Unfortunately I've missed the nights the men perform due to Wednesday-night work, but I heard that Chris was really good. Now I know that there is indeed a guy to look forward to for many weeks to come :)
