Chris Cornell Gives a Crap What Paula Abdul Thinks

I don't watch American Idol, but apparantly this guy, David Cook, sang Cornell's version of MJ's "Billie Jean" on the show. (I wish I'd never had to write that sentence.)

Now, old man "indie rock" has found vindication of sorts in the positive remarks on the performance from Randy, Paula, and Simon.

According to Billboard:

"There was a moment when I was sitting there writing this new arrangement thinking, 'Is this a good idea or a bad idea?' Watching the response from the judges was really gratifying. They were signing off on it right there. It was something that worked. It was an idea that went over huge. When I play it live on tour, it brings the house down every time."
