Creighton Fraker, Original American Idol Song: Hollywood Bound!

by at . Comments

When in doubt, just make it up!

That was the approach taken by Creighton Fraker on American Idol last night, as the aspiring singer took a bus ride from New York City to Pittsburgh and used that time to come up with his own material.

Was it the most creative song? No. It mostly just mentioned the judges' names a few times. But the panelists were impressed with the vocals and Steven Tyler went as far as to give Creighton a "3 gazillion percent yes" vote, while Jennifer Lopez said he was kind of like Jamiroquai and Justin Timberlake's baby. Even odder? It sort of applies...

Fraker wasn't the only original contestant on the air last night. Reed Grimm actually received a Golden Ticket thanks to a sitcom theme song!
