'Idol' Reject -- He's an Eagle Scout Now!

1/24/2011 7:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Cordeiro's singing wasn't up to par on "American Idol" this week, but his ability to tie a knot (or something like that) is apparently first rate -- cause he just got his Eagle Scout badge.

Cordeiro's rendition of "My Way" didn't get him an invitation to Hollywood -- "You scared everyone in the room," was Steven Tyler's reaction -- but this weekend in New Jersey, Cordeiro got his medal and badge ... signifying he had achieved the highest rank possible in the Boy Scouts.

How many merit badges do you think Taylor Hicks has?

I say that Chris should be proud of himself for being an Eagle Scout and a nerd. Nerds rule the world and Eagle Scout is a very difficult accomplishment. You rock, Chris!!

tilly    

had to stick Taylors name in there to get someone to look at it didn't you? Hicks is far from a boy scout so I doubt he has any.
great musician though. A few years on the southeast bar scene will knock the boy scout right out of you.

My son is just about to earn his arrow of light which is the highest rank you can earn as a cubscout. I would be so proud of him if he earned his eagle scout too. My dad is an eagle scout very few actually make the rank it is a VERY high honor!!

Oh Great. Now go save a fat chimp from choking on a ball.

His last badge obtained must have been the 'Masturbation' Badge because he sure is not going to get laid looking like that and being a top 'BOY' scout.

Have some class TMZ! It takes a whole lot more than just learning to tie a know to achieve what this young man has achieved! Why don't you start your post with a positive statement rather than down playing this young man. Your website is bullying and demeaning in articles like these and then you glorify crack whores and everything that is WRONG with this society of youth!

I agree with Number 11. This is huge and a business door opener. Forget the haters, in little time you'll be making more money than most of them and will probably be their bosses.
Now yes, take a breather 'cause you've earned it.
