The invasion of the American Idol contestants

Posted By on Fri, May 18, 2007 at 5:33 PM

Soon, America will be listening to nothing but American Idol contestants – and not just the winners. This year, Northeast Ohio has already seen appearances by Daughtry, the macho modern-rock asshole who finished fourth in season five, as well as the winner of that season, Taylor Hicks, who’s super-classy but d-u-l-l. Now it’s Bo Bice’s turn. Bice was season four’s runner-up, finishing beind multi-platinum bombshell Carrie Underwood. He was the least likely dude to show up on American Idol. Not only did the Alabamba native rock the Allmans’ “Whipping Post,” but he also employed Skynyrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama” as his theme song. But even this dude secured a major label deal, releasing The Real Thing onRCA at the tail end of 2005. If you want your American Idol fried southern-style – or want to see a guy who dresses like Shannon Hoon of Blind Melon -- check out Bice at 8 p.m., Sunday, May 20, at the Kent Stage, 175 East Main Street, Kent, $30 ADV/$35 DOS, 330-677-5005. – Justin F.
