  New Chance for a Fallen Idol...
This is the first season of Idol I've watched and it is due in large part to Taylor, Chris, and Elliot. This week Chris got voted off because he didn't have breasteses. However it looks like this won't be his last shot according to Extra.

Chris Daughtry Gets 'Idol' Boot and Offer of a Lifetime
May 11, 2006

Twenty-eight million jaws dropped to the floor Wednesday night as Chris Daughtry got voted off “American Idol.” But don’t think this rocker is down and out.

Only “Extra” broke big news about Chris that’s making headlines from Ryan Seacrest’s radio show to stations across the country.

“You have an offer to be the lead singer of a major band,” Ryan revealed to Chris Thursday morning on his hit radio show. “Theyre going to be on ‘Extra’ tonight, and they’re going to submit the formal offer for you.”

Thursday, Fuel bass player Jeff Abercrombie and songwriter/guitarist Carl Bell came straight to “Extra” with the offer of a lifetime -- they want Chris.

"Chris, if you are watching, we've talked about this before, and if you want to entertain it again we'll take it and go," Abercrombie offered.

Chris’ rendition of Fuel’s “Hemorrhage” was his first groundbreaking “Idol” performance. The band, which has been searching for a lead singer, saw Chris’ performance and they want him in the band.

Well Chris, it’s up to you, but first “Extra” has another “Idol” exclusive. Our Terri Seymour was with Ryan and Randy for LA’s FOX 11 just moments after Chris’ shocking send off.

"Obviously, it wasn't based on singing tonight because the wrong person went home," Randy admitted. "Catherine probably should have gone home tonight."

It’s down to the final three, and Simon came to “Extra” telling us now there are no favorites. “The funny thing about this show is when someone goes, you never know where their votes are going to go,” Simon confessed. “I genuinely don't know who is going to win.”

I'm not a Fuel fan (don't have any feelings either way really) though I did like the song of theirs that he sung, so I'm not sure how good of a move this would be for him. But my guess is that this can't be bad.
Well, yea, it can be bad.

Fuel needs Chris more than Chris needs Fuel. If he's smart, he'll pursue a solo contract simultaneously. He's got the chops, people love his voice, and he's the only guy I've seen on the show (admittedly, I haven't see nthe show much) with actual star quality.

Joining Fuel would be a great PR move for the band, but he'd be hooking up with alt-rockers who's spotlight time has come and gone.

I'm not an Idol fan (though my girlfriend is) but knocking this Chris guy off shocked the holy heck outta me.
I'm out of the loop on the "hip music scene". I just know that I like Billy Joel and Phil Collins and anyone who doesn't can go to heck. So I guess from what you're saying it could be bad, but he seems savvy enough to turn this opportunity into gold.

And I'd say the whole thing is fixed and if that... woman wins that'll be proof.
Why will that be proof that it's fixed?

(Again, I'm VERY unlearned when it comes to American Idol)
Oh just me being a bit cheeky. I don't think she has the talent that her competitors do. But if the American people disagree who am I to judge.
Judge not, right?

I'd be very, very surprised if the grey-haired guy doesn't walk home with the prize.

And look for a serious upswing in the number of articles/blog posts about the "new trend" of the music industry catering to older audiences.
You know he's really not that old, but yeah he is probably more attractive to filks in their mid thirties to late forties than Chris.
