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

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?
