David Hernandez: If You Could See Me Then

3/5/2008 4:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Prior to "American Idol," David Hernandez did more than just strip in gay bars -- he also sang on cruise ships with a group of guys called the Vinyl Four.

David has performed on over 12 luxury liners in the last two years. The boy likes to cruise!

Idol was never a format for people who have never been discovered. Kelly Clarkson had a record deal that went nowhere. I believe Taylor Hicks also released a record before AI. Clay Aiken seems to fit the bill of undiscovered talent. But most people on this top 24 list have some kind of performing experiences already. But this trend is hardly started this season. Frankly if someone is really good at singing, chances are they have already performed in public in some kind of forum. Be it singing solo in a church or sing at a local baseball game, etc. They didn't bend the rule for David really. Nikki from the first season was also a stripper. Frenchie got the boot because she was doing soft porn on the internet. If David was doing gay porn, I doubt he'll still be around. Bo Bice, who almost won, was convicted of possession of cocaine. So if we are to kick anyone off who are not 100% clean, innocent, etc., there will not be too many contestants left. Also big stars always have some kind of fatal "flaw" to them and that's why people are attracted to (Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Linsey Lohan, etc). I doubt David H will win this thing a la Diablo Cody. However, if he plays his cards right, he might be able to find himself in a very good situation. He was somewhat boring before but now he's at least somewhat interesting.

I thought David sounded off key throughout the entire song. He was either flat or sharp. Not good when singing a capella. I just kept thinking of all the times Simon has said as a diss "you should be singing on a cruise ship."

This guy is a fraud. On tonight's American Idol he tried to come off as some all American guy who goes to school and works at an Italian Bistro. He doesn't wake up until noon, because he's out stripping all night. Please, we're not idiots. Hurry up, David your 15 minutes is almost up.
