FCLC Freshman on “American Idol” Gets Dumped On By Judges

“And now, the end is near,” sang Chris Cordeiro, FCLC ’14, in his tone
deaf rendition of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way.” Cordeiro auditioned for
the current season of “American Idol,” which aired Jan. 19. Following
Cordeiro singing the first lines, veteran “Idol” judge Randy Jackson
said to newcomer Jennifer Lopez, “Yes it is,” referring to the end of
Cordeiro’s audition.

Cordeiro, 18, from North Arlington, NJ, did not move on to the next
round in the competition but he did manage to give Fordham College at
Lincoln Center a shoutout. Besides his musical aspirations, Cordeiro
said he hopes to become an Eagle Scout soon. His intro spot on “Idol”
included a short clip of a public awareness video he created for his
Eagle Scout project in which he reminds drivers not to text while
operating an automobile.

The two-night season premiere of “American Idol” continues tonight at
8 p.m. ET on Fox.
