William Hung - She Bangs

21 February, 2004 11:38 PM

willstage.jpgWho will be the American Idol Winner? Perhaps in a strange way the winner will be someone who didn't even get through the auditions! Anyone who has been watching American Idol will remember 'singer' William Hung. His rendition of 'She Bangs' is something I'll always remember. Unfortunately he didn't get through his initial American Idol audition - however that is not the end of the William Hung story.

William Hung A Real American Idol documents latest developments for William Hung, including a record deal, a petition for him to get William to run for president, and a variety of public appearances. They have video of William performing - remixes of his song, links to numerous articles written about him and photos of the man of the moment. The site has had over 8 million hits since going live - a star is born.

Also emerging are a whole heap of other William Hung Resources including an online petition to send Willam Hung to Hollywood to compete in the American Idol finals, numerous William Hung Fanclubs, a fundraising effort to send William to Hollywood, an online discussion forum on William , an online shrine to him (including a poll) and reports saying that William might return to American Idol in a special show. You can now even download a William Hong video clip of his audition to your mobile phone and get a William Hung ring tone! Perhaps he truely is the winner of American Idol this year.

Update: William Hung will be appearing on FOX's March 1 'Uncut, Uncensored And Untalented' Idol special.

Absolutely hilarious. I saw this on TV today and it just floored me. A $25,000 record contract? I wish I could throw money around like that :P

Jesse » 22 February, 2004 1:34 PM

I saw his tryout, and he had a really great reaction to the judges. Only thing that bugs me...is he getting any $$$ off the Ebay stuff? Hope so!

Phisch » 24 February, 2004 5:32 AM

Forget about the money, the fame, and all the other stuff.

My hats off to you for trying. There are people who may have better voices than you. But some of those people aren't even on the stage trying. At least you did what you set out to do.

» 4 March, 2004 6:40 AM

Oh....and don't pay attention to those that mock you. You're not a loser or an it. People often fail to look in the mirror before they say things.

» 4 March, 2004 6:45 AM

I'm not a fan of William Hung and a friend just forwarded one to me, SaveWilliamHung.com, it's the anti-William hung website. Check it out!

Betsy SaveWilliamHung.com » 15 March, 2004 1:05 PM

Yes, he is the legardary idol with the perfect attitude.



WILL'S FAN » 18 March, 2004 5:20 AM

i think that he has guts to go on american idol and tried his best there. Those who are haters, don't even have guts to try it out like him.

asian » 20 March, 2004 4:44 AM

I think he sux!!! He can't sing or act or perform, he should be banned from everywhere!!

cutsie » 31 March, 2004 5:40 AM

I think your doing well, keep up the good work, some people out their are just to jealous of you.

Red » 31 March, 2004 7:53 AM

He is pathetic! I used to think you have to be a hard worker or have talent to suceed in life. Now, you can totally suck and make $$$. What is this world coming to? Don't give me that "he's got guts to try out".. That's BS. He's totally stupid, that's why he even tried out.

For once I totally back the democratic party, but with a twist. I think we should have an income tax that taxes 99% of your income if you've made $$$ without hard work or talent.

I'm Asian, and I think he's doing a total disgrace to the asian population.

NOhung » 31 March, 2004 7:59 AM

William Hung is nuthin'! If you guys get a check out Bill E., you'll find that there are more significant personalities available for mass worship. And as Bill will show you, it's not about the individual. It's about the love.

A Friend » 2 April, 2004 12:35 PM

I think that the performance of William Hung has somewhat a significant human recognition, That is, However we may view a talent by how it is said, done or sung does not necessarily hold a Boundary. Human Talent is expressed in so many different ways and perceived in so many interpretations; and that somewhere in between the jumbled words, the voices, and the rhythm no matter how they are played contains in them - the human spirit.

the analyst » 2 April, 2004 10:59 PM

All of you that are haters, why don't you try to go out there in front of the judges (especially Simon) and audition. Those who think he "sux" need to try it themselves. I don't know why some people hate William - he's just sooo lovable. I mean, he didn't react by cussing the judges out (which YOU would probably do) or by crying, he just facecd the fact that he wasn't going on. So who really "sux" is you haters!

try your best do it !just do !

William is a true inspiration to all of us. He got bored with life and did something about it, look where he is now!

Brian » 18 April, 2004 2:23 PM

i think william hung is much BETTER than JLO and BRITTNEY SPEARS.
hung at least SINGS and does not lip sync when he is performing. at least we know hungs voice is REAL and not enhanced by technology.
at least we know hung DOES NOT NEED PLASTIC SURGERY to sell himself.
hung is the real deal, and the reason he is popular is that most people identify with him. most people(dont deny it) are at the privacy of their homes, when the radio is on, is singing just as bad/ good as him.

Jolisa Mortiz » 22 April, 2004 10:27 AM

i think william hung rox! hes the best and im gonna buy his album. im 11 years old and dont gimme this BS that william hung sucks! he is one of the greatest singers and american idol if fcukin retarted to boot him off! WILLIAM KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS

katherine » 23 April, 2004 9:52 AM

You have got to be kidding me... He represents the most stereotypical Chinese Civil Engineer from UC Berkely that has no talent whatsoever. People are ammused because he is so bad and yet he tries anyways regardless of whatever people thing.. blah blah blah no matter how hard he tries he SUCKS. People support him out of pity... PITY...not because they feel he deserves their support because of his singing skill. If anything he demoralizes the asian stereotype... yes it was fine the first couple times but now it's just out of hand...

Go back to school William and get your Civil Engineering degree and earn those 35,000 dollars a year that you probably will deserve

Oreo » 23 April, 2004 3:03 PM

hey i thought you were the best and you should have won.....i love you hunni. try your best and you'll do good.... god gives everyone a talent and your just finding it. work harder to become easier.

becky » 25 April, 2004 8:29 AM

William Hung you are my favourite singer. You should have won Amarican Idol 3.

Brittany » 27 April, 2004 11:34 AM

I think that it is terrible that William Hung is being used as an object for all to laugh at. First hearing about his supposed success, I was told that the whole situation was good because it was showing how an underdog rose up and made it. But then, after seeing how the American Idol website depicts him as a joke I was disgusted with the whole thing and will not support William Hung for fear that I will become one of those people who sits and laughs at a man who seems totally oblivious to the fact that he does not have musical gifts and is the butt of many jokes.

Jennia » 28 April, 2004 5:24 AM

he's selling too many merchandise of himself, while other celebrities don't.

and all you lovers out there, i had the guts ever since i was 6. i won in talent shows and went to Far East Choir competitions, but still, William Hung...if he wants to be famous, he has to get good tips. He should've taken voice lessons before he went on audition. He should perfrom in front of some people so he could get feedback before going to the American Idol audition.

Jessa » 28 April, 2004 10:27 PM

I give william credit he did his best and personaly I enjoy his music so anybody that critisizes him is just jealous that they don't have his fame. GO WILLIAM!!!!

i love you

PK~ » 5 May, 2004 12:18 PM

I just saw a tape of him singing for the first time. It was great. I hope his success lasts for quite some time, and that he doesn't get *(@&$ed over in any recording contracts.

soME ONE IN THIS WORLD » 12 May, 2004 1:59 PM

I think the will is the bomb!!!!!. I think he wonted to do good but not being good is what mad him so populare and to some of those people out there who think just becuse your the same nationallity as him dosent mean enything. your your own person who makes you own decision thank jesus christ that you can acually make your own decisions you know so i think willam is the bomb and he desirves to be.

lani smith » 14 May, 2004 11:43 AM

i think plp should not look down on william hung.... although he has no professional training and his voice is normal......at least he tries and he is 100percent better than those plp who always criticise him. This tells us that if there is a will, there is a way...although william has a flat voice, he prove to everyone of us that good voices doesnt mean you can sing very well. he loses in american idol but he has won many of the plps' heart. that's the truth......WILL, KEEP OUT THE GOOD WORK!

michelle » 15 May, 2004 7:48 PM

keep it up! i'll always support u ...........

catherine » 16 May, 2004 4:21 AM

William Hung has no talent in singing. From the very beginning when he auditioned, and sucked by the judges and up to now, he really sucks!

But no matter how stupid and untalented this young man is, let's face the fact that he made it and achieved his long time dream.

He's the man of the hour. He is different, and that difference is what people want to see and hear (a none traditional way of singing) right now. You know, just wanna here and see something unique in this field of profession. Don't you think so?

William Hunk » 17 May, 2004 8:15 PM

You stink!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Orry » 18 May, 2004 4:30 AM

I like your stil so me and my cusin where wondering if you can hook us up with a record company.thanks,jenna

nicolas van der vermeersch » 21 May, 2004 12:12 PM

i wanna by your freaking cd and dvd,,,CAN YOU KEEP ME IN TOUTCH???anyway i know how!!!
i hope you will live forever TO MAKE PEOPLES HAPPY

nick vermeersch » 21 May, 2004 12:19 PM

I am really very happy for hung! he's really an inspiration!!!!His phenomenal success brings hope for others because I know there are lots out there who dream of becoming famous but just can't, because of physical outlook and just don't have the talent. These are not really the basis to become famous afterall. It is also important that you have the ""CHARISMA". And I pity those who are anti-Hung because it's them who sux and insecure! You just can't accept the fact that there is someone "you think you're better" has now become successful which you didn't have! haha!

nosh » 21 May, 2004 2:22 PM

The first time I saw William Hung, I saw him very humble and a man with dreams. I just wish that he stays the same. Man.. don't be blinded with the fame and fortune that you are getting. Stay humble and just be old self. The way people saw you on your first audition at american idol. Good Luck!

noshka » 21 May, 2004 3:31 PM

william hung is so hot and sxy, he's even sxier that justin timberlake. he deserves 2 be the world idol, hes the best singer ive eva heard. he should join boys 2 men and he should be the next ricky martin.

rachel » 23 May, 2004 10:22 AM

william hung sux, u pplz must be death and blind, he is the worst singa ive eva herd. and he is sooo ugly!!

hannah » 23 May, 2004 10:25 AM

Just watched the audition video of Willian Hung. He is sincere and sweet. Atleast he has the guts to present himself infront of millions of people. Agreed that he does not have a great voice... but he sure does have a great ATTITUDE!!!!!!!

esther » 25 May, 2004 7:20 PM

William Hung - you really are one of the Best! Go man...go! God Bless you :)

Lyn » 26 May, 2004 1:30 PM

hung is hunghunk

» 26 May, 2004 3:56 PM

Whether he can sing..or can't do a lot of things, just admit it folks....he's now so much richer than most of us. So what if you hate him? For a guy who got his album sold more than Britney Spears on the 1st day, and sold so much more until now, I respect you so much, will. To those who hates him, I honestly don't understand why....so what if you do? He has become the idol of the century. And a rich one. I believe that in the future, he will improve so much faster than most of us. U're the man, Will!!!!!

Chris » 27 May, 2004 3:34 PM

You are so great. I like your song very much. Try your best. Kepp going on.

shirley » 6 June, 2004 2:39 AM

I think that the way William Hung sings Ricky Martin's She Bangs is totally hilarious. He certainly has a sense of humour!
