Chris Daughtry turns down Fuel’s offer; Cruise, Holmes want Kat to sing at their wedding

First Fuel was rumored to want American Idol 5 finalist Chris Daughtry as their lead singer. Then they made a formal offer. Then he performed with Live on the show’s finale. And now he’s turned down Fuel.

“I’m going to be doing my own thing,” Chris told the Charlotte Observer at his homecoming celebration. He “expects to announce his next career move in a few months, probably after the ‘American Idol concert tour ends this summer,” the paper reports. Apparently, he’s convinced that something better will come along, like a life in obscurity as a American Idol loser. Quick: Name the person who came in fourth place any other season. See?

Meanwhile, runner-up Katharine McPhee has a much better offer. She’s already been offered the most amazing deal ever by KFC, but now Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes apparently want her to sing at their wedding. They’re fans, according to an anonymously sourced World Entertainment News Network report. I’d joke about a manufactured pop star performing at a manufactured wedding, but that’d be unfair to Katharine, who’d be the only one bringing something genuine to that event.
