of millions around the world with his gut-wrenching rendition of Ricky Martin's
She Bangs. That Randy tried to hide his face with a sheet of paper, that Paula

screengrabs of his audition are making it onto blogs everywhere. There's also
I'm not mistaken, a radio interview with him where he sportingly belted
