Bend It Like Beck

I don't know what freaking season we're in with American Idol now -- all's I know is I think they hooked up a special Bat phone in the Sudan for the refugees to phone in their votes -- but you guys need to check out this gem from Season Four featuring Denton's Daron Beck (frontman for the Great Tyrant). Beck's got a pretty sweet Gothic-cum-metal-cum-Rocky Horror thing going; you can imagine how well that goes over with Simon and the gang.

Here he is with the Tom Jones classic "Delilah." In his YouTube comments, Beck insists: "That's not an act!" --Andrea Grimes
