This is a little bit rant and a little bit revelation, so I don't know if it will make it through, but...
OK, we all know that American Idol is about fresh-faced singers doing cover songs. But covers of a cover? Chris Daughtry admitted that he was "inspired" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers' version of Higher Ground during Stevie Wonder week. No problem.
But he smiled his cocky little grin when the judges told him how original he was for making Walk the Line "his own." How wrong they were.
A quick search of Napster shows that he did the band Live's cover of the Johnny Cash classic. It's cool if you want to be the rock dude, but don't take credit for other people's work. Check it out for yourselves.
And while you're at it, check out Chris' band, Absent Element's, website High school battle of the bands champs!
