    Uhh no.

    This isn't a topic of whether he can sing or not, it's a topic of making money. Any person, any business man, who see that this is easy money and would jump on it.

    For the first time, people around the world are buying an album of someone who has no singing skills, no previous training, looks like he has down syndrome and is totally fugly.

    "He may not be the next American Idol, but he is definitely a star and inspiration to everyone who sings in the shower,"


    where on earth is timechange when you need him?

    For the first time, people around the world are buying an album of someone who has no singing skills, no previous training...
    what on earth are you talking about?
    having no singing skills NEVER stopped anybody from being a "star" before.

    heh, think about it, the only diffrence about this guy is that he isn't good looking.

    He's in an American contest - an American record company has signed him up - the American public created the demand. I doubt any record company in Australia, or in most other countries, would be dumb enough to distribute his brand.

    But if William Hung can make a fast buck in America, good for him!

    American Idol came from England.

    Who said the record company is American? No where in that article did it state that an American Record company has picked up William Hung.

    Koch Records is an independent world record company.

    Yes, the "Idol" franchise was created by Simon Fuller, from Britian, but William Hung was in the American version - American Idol.
    Who said the record company is American? No where in that article did it state that an American Record company has picked up William Hung.

    Ok, very quickly looking at this, the deal with William was put together by Fuse Music Network and Koch Entertainment -

    Fuse Music Network -
    From here -
    Fuse, a network of Rainbow Media Holdings LLC, is the nation's only all- music, viewer-influenced television network, featuring music videos, exclusive artist interviews, live concerts and specials -- all rooted in the music experience.

    Fuse is based - 11 Penn Plaza, New York, NY 10001. Source here.
    Rainbow Media Holdings LLC -
    Koch Entertainment -
    From here -
    KOCH Entertainment is the leading and fastest-growing independent music company in the U.S . . . . KOCH operates its own record labels, based in New York City and Nashville, which cover multiple music genres . . .

    . . . Today, KOCH Entertainment is America's largest independently-distributed record company . . . Founded 16 years ago in North America, KOCH has built unique strengths in the development, acquisition, production, marketing and distribution of recorded music and video."
    So let's sum that up the deal with William was put together by Fuse Music Network and Koch Entertainment. Fuse is a part of Rainbow Media Holdings LLC, which is part of the publicly traded company, Cablevision Systems Corporation, on the NYSE, based in New York.

    Koch Entertainment was founded 16 years ago in the USA, is based in the USA, and is the fastest-growing independent music company in the USA.

    Like I said, only in America!

    Well if posting the truth makes me a sucker, then I must be a sucker. Pity you couldn't just admit you were wrong, rather than insulting me.

    Took me 15 minutes from Google. Hardly an effort at all.

    BTW, I'm an Aussie and not American.

    Well, when Rob83 said the companies weren't American, I had to check that out, as I didn't check that when I made my post about them being American. So 15 minutes on Google and it turned out I was right after all.

    To be honest, I didn't find him all that appealing. Yes, he had a bit of the "I'm a dork, I sang badly" funny singing thing the first time, but I heard him sing it a second time and he was just bad. Just bad doesn't thrill me.

    More power to the guy though.

    That's different, Eugene. The smilie contest makes fun of him, not making a record deal with him.

    And we didn't make fun of him in this thread? come on...

    Not to mention that the record company gave him the record deal exactly for the reason that he stinks. and he knows it.

    I wouldn't worry however... I doubt that he is here to stay.

    I highly doubt it that he knows it.

    No, you see, all things have a limit. One thing is to make fun of him, invite him to events to further embarrass the poor guy, and totally another is to call him a "singer" and sign recording deals with him.

    Are people seriously going to buy his album?

    What's sad is the FMN replaced MuchMusic on most U.S. cable systems. Only a few systems still carry MM.

    As for William Hung, I think his popularity will fade out quickly, much like the BuBB RuBB fella.

    Hey Bob, looks like he might make a fast buck in your neck of the woods too, if this post on his fan page is any indication:

    Im in year 11 at school and so many people talk about Will non stop!! Including Me! I'd just like to congratulate William on his achievements and for touching the hearts of the people from down under. Melbourne, Australia that is! Thanks Will! You're a superstar in the making!!!!!

    Love always, Alyssa xoxo

    All I can say, Willie, is ride the wave while it's there. 'Cause it won't last long. Most fad sensations are very short lived.

    Heh, given the sexual suggestion of his hit song title, and the inherently sexual overtones of his name, I wouldn't be surprised to see him in his own porn movie soon.

    I dont think Yupapa is from America and he isn't really well known outside of the US from what I can tell.
