Chris Daughtry sang Styx's 1978 song "Renegade," and he was pretty awesome. It doesn't hurt that I love that song to start with (partly because it was playing while the geeks from Freaks and Geeks, the dear, departed NBC show from a while back, prepared to face off with some bullies in the pilot episode. But I digress big time.) Anyway, he rocked it, and the judges were unanimous (thankfully, not Unan1mous): Randy said, "We've got a hot one tonight!" Paula: "It was outstanding. ... You're on your path." (Whew, wouldn't want to drive off the road.) Simon: "It was a million times better than the first two performances tonight." Ouch, but possibly true, and you know it pains me to say that.
