Chikezie 9/11 Plus 16 -- Unforgettable

3/12/2008 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

ChikezieSeptember 11, 2001 isn't just the day the world stopped. It also just happened to be "American Idol" Chikezie's sixteenth birthday.

It's pretty ironic Chikizzle ended up working as an airport screener for TSA.

Chikezie is amazing! Versatile and talented. I cannot wait to see him perform in concert. If he doesn't win Idol, there is something terribly wrong! GO CHIKEZIE!!

Who cares abouit this HACK!
Is someone in your office sleeping with him, or wanting to?
I wonder what you would say if he was wearing a fur coat?
Or is your Love for Chikezie, greater than your 'Pro-Terrorist-Peta' stance?

Chikezie was terrific last night on Idol. He seems like a nice guy too. Only 16 when 9/11 happened? Geez. Seems like only yesterday that 9/11 happened, and Chikezie's a grown man now. Time flies!

I remember when Amy Sedaris was stalking Chikezie -- he finally had to file a complaint against her with the police to get her to quit!

I heard part of what you sing on Tuesday and I'm feeling in. You put you into the song and I appreciate it. I wish you the best and kick those other non-talented a-holes out of the box!

That's not "irony".... Why must people continue to use the word "irony" for stuff that's not "ironic"?
