Brandon Calhoon is unforgettable for the wrong reasons: his off-key, painful rendition of Tempted and flubbing the lyrics of Don’t Lose Your Head, an INXS song, during his last-chance performance for the band. So what’s he up to nowadays? Brandon Calhoon released an independent solo album called Satisfied last year, and is in a band called Tobacco River Band.
8. Jessica Robinson
Geez there must be a gajillion Jessica Robinsons on the interwebs. (Note to would-be celebs: this is the Age of Google. The first order of business should be coming up with a Google-unique stage name before attempting stardom.) Jessica Robinson is the lead singer of two Chicago-based bands, HighGlossBlack and JunkFist, a cover band.
7. Deanna Johnston
Deanna Johnston is busy nowadays as co-owner of and performer on LA ALLSTARS, a “professional, high energy Entertainment Group”. She was also one of the singers on the original The Singing Bee on NBC, before it got canceled.
6. Ty Taylor
Ty Taylor has traded in his signature mohawk for a full set of hair, complete with sideburns to complete his new look as the lead singer of up-and-coming band Vintage Trouble. They just released an album in the UK called The Bomb Shelter Sessions, which is doing pretty well. They seem to be hitting their stride there in England, where they opened for Bon Jovi, and appeared on Later…with Jools Holland and BBC London 94.9.
