'American Idol': Happy 30th Birthday, Chris Daughtry -- a video tribute
Despite finishing fourth to Taylor Hicks, Katharine McPhee and Elliott Yamin, Chris Daughtry and his eponymous band has gone on to eclipse all three in the success department.
Daughtry has sold millions of albums and garnered several American Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards, but Chris initially auditioned for "American Idol" with Joe Cocker's "The Letter" and got a "no" vote from Simon Cowell!
Our favorite Chris Daughtry performance from "American Idol" was "Renegade" by Styx. The opening is particularly awesome.
In our hunt for the "Renegade" video, we also came across this acoustic version of Lady Gaga's "Poker Face." Enjoy!
Happy Birthday, Chris Daughtry!
