The greatest thing about American Idol is that it has brought attention to what I have already been doing ... My motto is, 'Whatever it takes,' and this is not the end of the road. I am opening up a new chapter in my life and I am excited for the year to come.
BERLIN -- "You are the worst singer in the world," is what many American Idol contestants hear from Simon Cowell. For Jimmy Charles, his smooth country voice sent chills up Simon's spine, which then sent Jimmy to Hollywood. - USA Today
