William Hung shot to fame on the back of a terrible audition of Ricky Martin's She Bangs in the TV show American Idol 3 (2003), which endeared him to millions of viewers and fans worldwide. Although he didn't make it through the first auditions, this earned him a record deal with Koch Records. It was later revealed that Hung, a university student originally from Hong Kong, is a Pokémon addict. He plays the Pokémon Trading Card Game every Sunday and is an excellent Pokémon strategist. Hung has also performed the Pokémon Johto Journeys theme song in public. More information about William Hung can be found at his main fan page here.
Every kid knows 14-year-old Dan Radcliffe as the actor who plays Harry Potter in the successful series of movies based on J.K. Rowling's novels. As well as loving old punk music and playing the bass guitar, Radcliffe has named Pokémon as one of his three favourite TV shows. Maybe there's more to him than it seems XD.
