How Constantine Maroulis can win ”American Idol”

Eliminated April 27, 2005

AGE 29

HOMETOWN New York City

WHAT’S IN TUNE Not a whole heck of a lot, although he’s got the rock-star swagger down pat and apparently knows how to burn a hole in young female viewers’ hearts with his bedroom eyes.

WHAT’S OFF-KEY In three weeks of semifinal performances, Constantine has parted ways with the melody more frequently than Randy has said ”dawg.”

CLOTHES CALLS If you’re gonna rock the chest hair, might as well undo another button, no?

WHAT IT’LL TAKE TO WIN Must never again employ the unfortunate faux-rock howl he used during his rendition of ”Hard to Handle.”

REQUEST LIST U2’s ”Desire,” Neil Diamond’s ”Girl, You’ll Be a Woman Soon,” the Animals’ ”Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”
