It's that time again

My early pick for this season's American Idol: New Yorker Constantine Maroulis. I like his odds because he's totally comfortable in his own skin and onstage. He has an extensive background in theater (e.g., leading roles in national productions of Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Rent) and is the singer in a rock band. His voice is warm and he has a great range.

Oh, and I think I forgot to mention: He's so impossibly hot that his mere existence drives me insane. (Oops, did I type that out loud?)
