American Idol has produced many legitimate pop stars over the years, but it has also created many illegitimate pop stars as well. The most famous of all was William Hung. After singing a laughably bad rendition of Ricky Martin’s “She Bangs,” Hung became instantly famous. The judges were unusually harsh to Hung, which led to people sympathizing with him, even though he was undeniably untalented. That didn’t stop him from getting a record deal and some momentary fame though. That fame did subside and Hung’s fifteen minutes are definitely over.
