Lovable American Idol reject William Hung may be the world's best-loved terrible singer this side of William Shatner. Hung hung himself during his AI audition, singing flat while shaking his bon-bon to Ricky Martin's "She Bangs." But that hasn't stopped him from getting a recording deal and releasing a debut album, Inspiration, that's as long on charm as Hung is short on talent. The well-meaning crooner offers up his favorite cover songs, including Elton John's "Can You Feel the Love Tonight," R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly," and the aforementioned fan favorite, "She Bangs." Somewhere Simon Cowell is cringing.

This is a great cd. William is such a good singer and so great to listen to. This cd is a MUST HAVE! GO WILLIAM, YOU ARE AWESOME!

This album as you could imagine, was just awful. It's sad how people can be so cruel. I guess it's going to be worse when William comes to the realization that people are laughing at and not with him. Those that buy this album only aid in perpetuating poor music. Other bands like White Snake, Winger and the bare naked ladies are all past no talents we the people put in the spotlight only to banish them in musical obscurity soon after. Mr. Hung will no doubt follow in these sad sad footsteps. Don't buy this album. Hearing it on the radio is enough I assure you.

i made a mistake thinking this cd is funny, but it was a TOTAL waste. WIlliam Hung is an international laughingstock, and he doesn't know it, because too many people buy his STUPID and disturbingly sour karaoke cd. don't buy it. simon should speak out against this!!

Not since the controversal and legendary first albums by Mister Ed the horse and Lassie has a debut album fascinated and enthralled the American people as much as "Inspiration" has. Hung's soothing singing style is easy on the ears and pleasing to the touch. It's plain to see that superstardom is in the cards for young Hung. Put it on, turn it up, and let the chunks fly !

William Hung is hilarious. Even though American Idol rejected him, he's my hero to follow out his dream of singing even though he's not the best singer. Keep on singing William and i'll buy your CD.

William Hung makes me want to shake my bon bon. This is great music and I don't understand why everyone is so mad. He has a passion for music if not like any other singer with a record deal. He's just living out his dream. I just say don't take that happiness away from him. Buy buy buy! Also, it's not that bad on your ears. It's pretty darn funny.

William Hung is a delightful young man who sings his heart out! He knows he doesn't have a very good voice. He mentions his vocal shortcomings on his cd. He enjoys what he is doing and if you do not like his voice do not buy it. He had fun making the cd and my son and I are enjoying it! We give it 4 stars!!! Can't wait for his next cd!

sorry to say, but he cannot sing worth anything. even I can sing better than that. i should have a cd out by now if that's the standards record companies are setting, shouldn't i?

...but this is just awful. I mean, I could see how someone might buy this cd thinking, "this will be a riot!" But, it's not even that! I can't listen to the clips without wincing. It's not funny, it's painful. Please listen to the clips of this cd before you even condsider buying!!!

William Hung is a very lovable with his first album Inspiration. In case you were living under a rock for the past few months William hung is the guy that got kicked off America idol while singing his best (read as he can not sing very good) and Shaking his Bon Bon to Ricky Martins “She Bangs!” Well he then became a Cult Icon and got a record deal. Hung belts out suck tunes as “Shake your Bon bon, Rocketman, Hotel California, I believe I can fly, and of course She Bangs. Hung Singing actually has improved since we last heard him in this effort and the songs are tolerable. There are a few I wonder about though. The best parts of the CD are the Messages from Hung. His Message can be summed up in “if you believe it, it will happen” Over all the CD is fun and you should buy it. Just remember you are not buying the best singer but the one with the most heart.

I didn't think that he would go and make a record, he is brave but I don't really think that he that good of a singer. One thing I noticed he doesn't care how much people laugh at him he stills keeps on going.

this guy is off the hook he has one amazing vocal range hes hella funny hes just as funny as dane cook and matt stone and trey parker of south hes also just as funny as george carlin and hes also just as funny as the jerky boys and the insane clown posse

Ok. I think William Hung is cute and has a great personality. Although I think he's a great person...why would you waste your money on a person who CAN'T sing? I also think its a little mean..i mean poor guy doesnt even realize he can't sing. Some songs a a couple seconds long and there are only 4 or 5 real songs. BUT the cd must be very funny and enjoyable with friends to goof around with, but after a while wont it be boring?..just my opinon..

I don't get it. He's not talented at all. This ruins classics (Hotel California) and brings back bad songs (She Bangs). American Idol is already a joke, now its jokes are stars. I repeat, I don't get it.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Many people just don't get it. If you didn't know, the music industry is ALL about making money by entertaining people. It doesn't matter how the music is done, but as long as people are entertained, the music has done its job. Hung may not be a good singer, but he is funny and entertaining. If you think Britney Spears makes "music", then Will Hung does too.

I can't wait for you to do a love song track.....You're voice and style of music gives me the chills
Guest More than 1 year ago all the other American Idols who actually could sing like last seasons Frenchy. The only good thing about this is, is that it is sort of funny.
Guest More than 1 year ago
It is incredibly unfair to the people who worked there butts off to be in the finals of american idol. This guy is becoming famous because he can't sing for his life... why would anyone want to pay money to listen to something that hurts your ears??
Guest More than 1 year ago
William Hung is one of the only singers now that sing because they love to not because of the fame and money. His voice might not be the greatest but his message will touch you. Buy it!!!!!!!
Guest More than 1 year ago
His CD is not doctored up like these other sings have done.Also you all make think he's bad and dumb but guess what he's laughing all the way to the bank even if he don't sound good.And he had the guts to get on T.V.and sing.So he's being his self and that's what I like he's not a phony.

This is a rib-cracking cd with a lot of energy and will. If you're sad or angry just listen to all these up-lifting songs and they'll make you laugh non-stop! Great for kids of all ages. The most entertaining cd out there.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Okay everyone, let's come back to reality. Granted, Hung was fun to watch on A.I., but the world is crazy to release this album. William is nothing but a publicity stunt, and the world is laughing at him.. this is so... degrading... I hope that Hung will come to his senses and realize that this is all wrong... I am proud of him, however, that he feels he's doing his best... good luck, kid...
