“American Idol” favorite William Hung made a rare appearance to relive his glory days and sang some of his greatest hits for one of the rowdiest holiday crowds in the country.
The Blast obtained video of Hung singing his “AI” trademark jam, Ricky Martin‘s “She Bangs,” at Common Ground in NYC during the annual SantaCon pub crawl.
For the uninitiated, SantaCon allows hundreds of very naughty bar patrons to dress like Mr. and Mrs. Claus and deck the halls by getting blitzed out of their minds. The event has also gained criticism for bringing about tons of public urination, vomiting and vandalism.
We’re told the popular crawl stop, Common Ground, invited the infamous season 3 “Idol” contestant to host the festivities for the night and paid him a few thousand dollars to sing.
After his famous rendition of “She Bangs,” Hung belted out some other classics, like “Y.M.C.A.,” and the crowd went nuts!
Along with his dream of a singing career, Hung has worked as a technical crime analyst for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
