J.D. Fortune the New Lead Singer of INXS
Why He's a Rock Star
On the finale, with his competition looking on, Fortune, 32, searingly sang the Rolling Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want." "We are truly in awe," said cohost Dave Navarro.
He used to play one.
The Nova Scotia native (real name: Jason) once toured with a Legends show as Elvis Presley (from the young, sexy years, not the Vegas jumpsuit era).
He comes with a hard-knocks backstory.
A former Canadian army radio operator, he was living in his car earlier this year.
He's unapologetically cocky.
"I knew I'd be right for this," Fortune told PEOPLE just after his win. "It feels like home being with this band."
And above all because INXS has deemed it so.
Though Fortune was just 3 when INXS played its first gig, the band's members feel confident in their choice. "In a funny way," says guitarist Tim Farriss, runner-up Marty Casey "reminded us a bit of Michael [Hutchence]," the front-man they lost to suicide in 1997. "But I had this feeling Michael would have wanted us to go with J.D."
