Chris Daughtry was born

rock band 'Absent Element.' Daughtry rose to fame
with the help of the 5th season of American Idol. Although Daughtry didn't
win the tile and came in 4th, his exposure on the
show led him to a recording contract, the ability
to form his own band, a #1 debut LP and single,
and the bragging rights of gaining more success
than those who did better on American Idol.

Top 12 finalists of the 5th season of American Idol.
