TORONTO (AP) - William Hung butchered "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" during the seventh-inning stretch of Sunday's matchup between the Toronto Blue Jays and Texas Rangers, much to the delight of 22,225 at SkyDome.

The American Idol reject best known for his hyperactive, tone-deaf rendition of Ricky Martin's "She Bangs," shrugged off a brief smattering of boos and belted out the baseball classic off-key while fans egged him on. Some even joined in.

Hung's presence brought a gaggle of media usually indifferent to baseball to the game, including staff from Rolling Stone magazine. A team official said more media credentials were issued Sunday than on opening day.

The Blue Jays initially tried to bring Hung in opening day, but that conflicted with the release of his debut album, "Inspiration," which is nearing 100,000 copies sold.

"I still am surprised," Hung said before the game. "I can't believe it."

The record deal is certainly testing the limits on the Hong Kong native's 15 minutes of fame. A civil engineering student at the University of California, he's spending most of his time these days touring to promote the album.

I found it mildly amusing for a few seconds, but a record deal is rediculous.

What retard would buy a record, from a guy who just can't sing for beans, or has no musical talent at all?

Wait a sec. Are we still talking about the Hung guy, or did we switch over to Ricky Martin himself?

I actually enjoy listening to Ricky Martin.

William Hung, on the other hand, simply could not carry a tune if his life depended on it.

The fact that Hung got a recording contract is the ultimate injustice and slap in the face to all the strugling recording artists out trying to make it big. A lot of them probably actually can sing, and do it well.

If the RIAA was truely serious about keeping the general public buying those overpriced plastic discs, they had better stop signing on people like William Hung.

Ugh! I wouldn't even want to download William Hung's album for free!!

This further evidence that if you have some sort of publicity angle going for you, they will give a record deal regardless of talent. :reallymad: :reallymad: :reallymad:

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
