Kiss rocker Gene Simmons has fallen for the contestants on American Idol
after sitting in as a judge for a show.
The rocking perfectionist feared he wouldn't be a good judge because his
standards are so high, but he was amazed by the bravery of contestants who
performed without music.
He says, "(There's this) amazing amount of courage it takes to get up
there - no music, no drums, no nothing - and stand in front of four people
you've never met in your life... and just give. They're all winners in that
Simmons joins the likes of SUGAR RAY singer Mark Mcgrath as a celebrity
guest judge on the upcoming third season of the show.
