American Idol Legend William Hung joined The Jake Brown Show (3/27/18)

American Idol legend William Hung joined me on The Jake Brown Show. How could you not remember Hung’s performance of “She Bangs” during the American Idol auditions in 2004 in season 3 of the show…that is still going on 14 years later. Hung was on the show at the height of its popularity, when 30 million were tuned in every week. Hung capitalized off the viral performance by making an album titled “Inspiration” that sold over 200,000 copies…one of those to 13-year-old Jake Brown. You better believe I was using Bar Mitzvah money to buy that classic album.

We spoke about his journey, the Idol audition, what he would have done if he didn’t do She Bangs, speaking around the world now and inspiring others, his parents reaction, the fame, commercials and endorsements he did, what he’s doing now, and he even sings a snippet of “Achy Breaky Heart” for me. This was a wonderful trip down memory lane for me.

It’s always an adventure when Nails is in studio. 1986 Mets world Series champion, three-time Phillies All Star, and one of the most wild interviews guaranteed every time Lenny Dykstra joined me for a third and final time in studio on The Jake Brown Show.

The conversation went everywhere: Charlie Sheen and their fallout, his alleged videos out there, Sheen being bisexual, Mets, Phillies, women, how he tries to still bang, his financial situation, a reality show he’s working on, and a whole lot more shenanigans.
