He Bangs! American Idol’s William Hung Crushes The Competition At Aria

Pop-culture footnote gets a foothold in poker.

Nothing gets by the internet sleuths on Two Plus Two. Nothing.

Especially not when one of the original American Idol “bad singers”, William Hung – who became a nationwide sensation for his rough version of Ricky Martin's “She Bangs” – crushes the Aria daily tournament in Las Vegas.

William Hung, who has since put his pop ambitions to rest in liu of a job with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, defeated 70 runners – including commentator and poker televised personality Robert Williamson III – to drag a first place prize of $2,264 in the Aria nightly $125.

Winning a poker tournament is a little like getting featured on American Idol: both take a little bit of luck and a little bit of skill. Here goes the Hung one again – showing the everyman that you too, can succeed if you try.

Good on you William Hung!
