don’t be fooled by chris golightly..he may seem like the innocent orphan that wants you to feel sorry for him for your votes..truth is he just wants to get ahead in life using his story for your sympathy..i should know he has done that trick on me and he got me good..he may say he’s changed and is more truthful now but i don’t believe him..he is a very good liar and a con artist..for somebody who was an orphan he should appreciate what people do for him..but all he does is think about himself..he’s a hypocrite..he auditioned last year and lied his whole way through the auditions..but best of wishes if you want someone like him to be your american idol..
