7 News Features: All About Ace
Ace Young talks about how Idol changed his life, being a heart throb and has advice for this year's contestants. Our Idol Insider Louis Aguirre has more with his special report "All About Ace."
WSVN -- He had boy-band looks and the personality to match.
Former Idol contestant Ace Young is still riding the Idol wave.
Ten months after he got the boot -- it's still "all about Ace."
The boy from the Mile-High City says he's still on top of the world.
Ace Young: "It's been the most hectic and the most fun I've ever had in my life."
Discovered in Denver --
Ace singing: "I wanna know/Who ever told you I was letting go?"
Ace left quite the impression on Paula.
Paula Abdul: "From a woman's point of view, when you smile, forget about it."
Yeah, that smile making Ace the season five heart throb. Fans still haven't forgotten him and are still sending him gifts.
But Ace's come-hither stare and boy next door looks couldn't mask a "pitchy problem."
Ace singing: "Tell me, did you fall from a shooting star."
Randy Jackson: "Once again, completely the wrong song from you, and you didn't sing it well."
He found himself in trouble week ...
Judge: "Ace, you are in the bottom three tonight."
After week ...
Judge: "You are back in the bottom three this week."
Ryan Seacrest: "The person with the lowest number of votes is Ace."
Sorry, brother, time to go.
And while that meant no more flirting with Paula --
"One day you'll have to explain to me how you got that one."
"You got it."
And no more cheesy Idol commercials --
Ace Young: "Who would have thought I'd look good in pink? I'm the fifth boy. If I'd wore a pink shirt, my brothers would beat me."
Looking back, Ace says he's got no regrets.
Ace Young: "It was definitely the best decision I've ever made."
One piece of idol fame ... Image conscious Ace took a pass on ... The chance to bare it all for lots of cash.
Shireen Sandoval: "Is it true 'Playgirl' offered you a lot of money to pose in their magazine?"
Ace Young: "Is it true that Miami is a party town?"
These days you can find Ace jamming with his band in a home studio.
Ace Young: "You could set up drums in there if you wanted to."
And still living the American Idol dream.
Ace Young: "The big dream is not just being known, but being able to do what you love for a living."
