Idol's golden boy, or shall we say platinum boy, Chris Daughtry, has been tapped by CNN to provide the theme song for the network's League of First Time Voters initiative. And what better song to really drive their point home and get people voting for their first time than a cover of Foreigner's hit "Feels Like the First Time." "Getting to rerecord a classic song like this was a real honor for us, and we hope it helps inspire people to vote,” says lead singer Chris Daughtry. "We strongly believe that it doesn’t matter who you vote for, as long as you vote."Foreigner's Mick Jones, who wrote the song back in the late '70s, gave the Grammy-nominated band his seal of approval saying their version is "very cool" and "more than captured the essence of the original."The single, set to premiere on Campbell Brown: Election Center Monday, August 18, will also appear on Daughtry's upcoming expanded version of its album, Daughtry Deluxe, September 9. But the good news is we have the m... read more

Blink and You'll Miss Daughtry at Grammys; Plus: The Latest on Jacko

Chris Daughtry is telling his fans to look for him during the red-carpet-arrivals portion of the Grammys on Sunday because he's pretty sure he's not going to make the cut for the telecast. "We don't even know if they are going to air our nominations yet," Daughtry told the Associated Press. He has reason to be concerned: There are 110 Grammy categories, but fewer than 10 percent of them are actually handed out during the telecast. Also, since this year is a special 50th-anniversary celebration of the Grammys, there will be even fewer awards than usual. The American Idol vet and his bandmates nabbed an impressive five nominations: Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals; Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals; Best Rock Song; Best Rock Album; and Producer of the Year (Non-Classical). Well, if he can't be on the tee-vee on Sunday night, here's hoping that the chrome-domed rocker will at least get to meet Justin Timberlake. In addition to Daughtry, the Grammys w... read more

American Idol's Best Auditions Ever

This Wednesday's American Idol is a "Best of the Rest" recap of the Season 7 auditions we didn't see throughout each city. That got us thinking about some of the best auditions we've seen, regardless of whether the candidate went on to Idol greatness. Instead of a top-10 list, we thought we'd have a battle of the sexes: the best women's auditions versus the best from the men. — Erin FoxTop Five Women's Auditions5) Frenchie Davis, "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going" | Watch on YouTubeHoly crap, we think our ear drums just burst listening to her amazing vocal power. Randy and Paula gave her a standing ovation (Simon, of course, stayed seated but clapped as enthusiastically as he could), and if she hadn't been kicked off the show for those naughty pictures, there's no telling how far Frenchie could have gone. 4) Carrie Underwood, "I Can't Make You Love Me" | Watch on YouTubeWho knew this farm girl who sported the '80s wardrobe and glamour-shots makeup at her audition would become ... read more
