So You Think You Can Sing?
CARLY PATTERSON, 18
DAY JOB: Former Olympic gymnast, now an aspiring pop singer. "I'm always blaring music. I hate riding in the car with my mom because she's always turning the music down."
JAI RODRIGUEZ, 27
DAY JOB: One of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy's Fab Five. "My agent called and said, 'You're going to California.' I felt like it was American Idol. I was like, 'No, shut up!'"
CHRIS JERICHO, 35
DAY JOB: Wrestler and rock band Fozzy's singer. "I started singing because no one in my [first] band wanted to. I come from the David Lee Roth school where it's more about the show."
LUCY LAWLESS, 38
DAY JOB: TV's former Xena: Warrior Princess and mom of three. "I could not turn this down. I think it would be my lifelong regret. It's better to flame out than to chicken out."
HAL SPARKS, 36
DAY JOB: Actor (Queer as Folk) and frontman of metal band Zero 1. "My dad sang blue-grass. Growing up, I was a KISS fan. I want to show people that metal is a virtuoso art form."
CHEECH MARIN, 60
DAY JOB: Actor (Cars, the Spy Kids movies). "I made my first record when I was 5. I mean, it wasn't an official record; it was a friend of my mom's who had a little recording device."
ALFONSO RIBEIRO, 34
DAY JOB: Actor (The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air). "I've been singing since I was a kid. The sitcom has kind of gone away, and reality has taken its spot. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em."
LEA THOMPSON, 45
DAY JOB: Actress (Hallmark Channel's Jane Doe mysteries). "I sang in Howard the Duck! My image is kind of goody-goody, and it will be fun to show people the more rockin' side of me."
