Dalton Rapattoni – Phantom of the Opera – He’s a vocal coach at a school of ROCK in Texas. OH FOR GOD SAKES. This guy is a total ringer! He’s already famous, a member of the boyband IM5. Check it out.  The singer isn’t a household name, but has already amassed a fanbase. He accompanies himself on guitar. Harry digs the way he flipped a Broadway song. Jlo likes the androgyny thing he’s got going. Dalton is a very pretty boy. Keith calls him an artist or something. To be honest, I thought he was kind of pitchy and average. We’ll see what he can do. Maybe he’ll change my mind.  3 yesses
