Chris Daughtry

Chris Daughtry made our all-time ”Idol” Top 10

Song ”Hemorrhage (In My Hands)”

Date March 1, 2006 (season 5)

Why We Remember Fourth place, shmourth place! Daughtry’s rock-star destiny was as obvious as a Ryan Seacrest punch line by the second week of Idol‘s fifth-season semifinals, when the bald-headed dude dug into this Fuel song with the kind of polish and charisma usually exhibited only by headline acts at massive stadium shows. In a word, awesome.
