Last year, everyone was hating on an American Idol contestant named John Stevens. Though only a teenager, his mellow singing style harkened back to the days of Fred Astaire. Not good for a pop show like Idol, and not good for Stevens whose weaknesses were shown on themes like Gloria Estefan night. The public hatred for this kid was so huge it spawned johnstevenssucks.com before he was mercifully voted out.

Out of AI Season 3, the only people I know of to have album releases are Fantasia, Diana DeGarmo, George Huff and William Hung. On June 28, you can add John Stevens to that list. I initially scoffed when I found the link, but the songs on his website sounded pretty good and fit his style of crooning well. I think this Red album will find success for those who like light jazz sound. His cover of This Love is interesting, to say the least.

I heard his cover of "This Love" today too, and it was pretty sweet. I don't see it making a big splash, but the best of luck to him.

Holy crap...this album could easily end up being the first "American Idol"-related-anything I'd buy. Attaboy John!

Although the nonsensical lyrics to "This Love" still drive me nuts, they're more tolerable as a slow lounge ballad.

Ha!

I raced over to that site saying there is NO WAY that John Stevens is doing a Pantera cover....

I forgot about the Maroon 5 song.
