I saw Daughtry last night at the Hard Rock Live and can I say...AMAZING!!! I saw him at Universal Studios back in April also and it was great! He is the best artist to come out of American Idol! His band rocks and he doesn't hit a bad note!

HEY trish. Robin is awesome, love him. He should win just for 'Lost Without You' alone. Anytime that song comes on, I can't help but listen. Seriously, who listens to LP? I used to, I love Reanimation but I'm so not into them anymore. That's high school, 4 years ago. Funny that I have an LP trucker in my closet from when Meteora came out. LAME! LOL. Anyway, as much as I like JT's music, I think FS/LS was overrated. It wasn't as good as the first, which I still love. I say GO ROBIN! My aunt met him a few weeks back and said he's nice and really cute! :)
