American Idol Reject Scores Internet Fame

An AMERICAN IDOL reject, who was cut from the show's current season after just one audition, has now found fame on the internet.

Hong Kong native WILL HUNG, 20, proved to be so entertaining with his frightful rendition of RICKY MARTIN's chart hit SHE BANGS, fans have set up website WILLIAMHUNG.NET in his honour.

The civil engineering student recently told the UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT BERKELEY's DAILY CALIFORNIAN newspaper, "I feel the producers really exploited my lack of talent. I looked like an idiot up there."

Singer PAULA ABDUL, who serves as a judge on the show alongside SIMON COWELL and RANDY JACKSON, says, "It's a little heartbreaking to see. I just hope that he learns to take it with a grain of salt and maybe look at the positive aspect now he's become a little famous."
