Chris Daughtry, of course, was a fan favorite on American Idol. We're going to make this one a tie between his performances of "Walk The Line" and "Hemmorage." Both were amazing and completely original compositions.

Clay Aiken had an amazing voice right from his first American Idol audition. Throughout the season, he just kept getting better and better... and then he sang the classic "Bridge Over Troubled Water." Complete with gospel choir and all, Clay brought the house down.
