I think that Chris, in what he does best, medium to hard rock, is brilliant. I do wonder if he can win this thing however. Ultimately Idol is more pop than rock oriented, Bo's second place finish notwithstanding. The poobahs who produce the show are all about the marketing money and pop and country\pop have sure audiences. If Chris doesn't win but goes very deep into the competition, I'd love to see Clive Davis or whoever, sign him and put a world class rock band behind him with some great song writers. This guy looks to be the perfect front man for a kick-ass rock group. He could be a Bob Seeger type of success.
