Second Chance for Chris Sligh

And the circus continues. Curly-haired crooner Chris Sligh was axed from American Idol last night. Voters weren't too impressed with his rendition of The Police's "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" on Tuesday.

But don't you worry about a thing. He may still have a second chance at a recording deal. Sligh's "former" band, Half Past Forever, recently submitted the music video "Know" in the online video music competition, Music Nation, where artists compete for a recording contract with Epic Records.

You might be in for a surprise. It starts out as a bland acoustic session, but wait until the the full thing kicks in around the 0:48 second mark. It is a decent pop rock tune with a peppy chorus, a dramatic string section and sugar sweet harmonies that sound a lot more polised than what Slight has been belting out on American Idol.
