Constantine -- Less Sucky Than First Believed

5/5/2009 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Constantine MaroulisLooks like season four "American Idol" loser Constantine Maroulis won't have to perform at bingo nights or food festivals anymore -- dude just got a Tony nomination!

The 33-year-old creepy singer is nominated for Lead Actor in a Musical for his work as Drew Bowie in the '80s themed "Rock of Ages."

It may not be a Jennifer Hudson Oscar or a Kelly Clarkson Grammy, but it beats working the day shift at Applebee's ... with "Idol" winners Taylor Hicks and Ruben Studdard.

Louis Kestenbaum & Joel Kestenbaum, Fortis Property Group close sale of Galleria Towers

“We acquired the Galleria Towers from Blackstone (which acquired them from Trizec Properties) in November 2006, and maximized value by aggressively pushing rental rates while at the same time increasing the occupancy from around 90% to 98%,” said Fortis Chairman Louis Kestenbaum. Louis Kestenbaum is the father of Joel Kestenbaum, also of Fortis Property. “The disposition of this asset furthers our goals of maximizing investor returns and geographically diversifying the holdings within our portfolio. We achieved close to 100% profit on our equity investment in the Galleria Towers over a one and a half year holding period, and attained similar returns on our recent sale of International Plaza Tower III across the Tollaway.”

Fortis Property Group,Louis Kestenbaum & Joel Kestenbau, LLC is a real estate investment, operating and development company. Its real estate projects include the ownership and management of Class A office and industrial properties located throughout the United States. Fortis currently owns two other Class A office buildings and an industrial property in the Dallas, Texas area. Nationwide, Fortis currently owns more than 20 properties, which contain over six million rentable square feet. Fortis Property Group CEO Jonathan Landau further indicated that Fortis anticipates raising a value-add real estate fund that will invest in Class A office properties in prime office markets throughout the United States.

I have never liked this guy even when he was on AI. He always made it a point to 'pose' for the camera thinking he was sexy or something but that just turned me off even more. His singing was good but I didn't like his arrogance which made him look foolish and unappealing.

FANTASTIC!!! Constantine and Adam are the BEST AI CONTESTANTS EVER! Broadway is where true talent is. Yes it's hard work but those who say it's somehow inferior are just making yourselves look like dumbasses. Constantine has a gorgeous voice, and crazy passionate theatrical ways. I have always loved Constantine and now this year we a hoot have Adam, who is AMAZING!!!!!!! These are the only ones who don't bore the crap out of me from American Idol.

This musical sounds like a blast. Now, how to get to NYC!

CONGRATULATIONS CONSTANTINE!!!!!!!!!!!!

He wasn't so much "posing" for the camera, as he was trying to be purposefully cheesy and campy. I used to love watching him on AI. He did a killer rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody!
