Now that you've won American Idol, here's some career counsel.

KEEP IT ROCK Play to your rocker-with-heart strengths. It worked for Chris Daughtry, it can work for you.

TAKE SOME CHANCES You didn't win Idol by playing it safe. Don't start now.

MAKE IT ALL ABOUT YOU Avoid making an album by committee. Keep the producers and outside writers to a minimum.

STAY SCRUFFY Looking a bit rough around the edges gives you a little extra grunge cred.
