Is Christopher Richardson the Hottie McHotstein of American Idol Season 6 or Just a Bad Justin Timberlake Impersonator?

Helloooooo! Who else saw Christopher Richardson–that Justin Timberlake look- and SOUND-a-like–during tonight’s American Idol Season 6 auditions? (What! I was doing laundry, ok?)

You know, the one wearing the green shirt and ::shudders:: tan shorts? He’s my new imaginary reality TV boyfriend. I hope he makes it to the next round…even though he said that he was singing a song that was “interpetated”. As Miss Paula Abdul said, “the girls are going to looooove him.” And hellz yes, she was correct.

And as we all hoped, he’s got a MySpace page…with only one friend. Wah waaaah. And judging by the photos, looks like he dressed up as JT and/or Robin Thicke (yes, as in Growing Pains Alan Thicke’s son) for Halloween or something. Compare with:

and this.

Will his nickname be “Chrissy Rich”? “Christoson”?

Missed Chris? Go ahead and watch his audition…

  1. I think hes so much hotter than JT…

    OMG, last night was great!

    BTW – sorry to go a bit off topic but I read online that Season 4 American Idol Semi-Finalist Sarah Mather (shes hot too!) after being voted off AI has gone her own way looking find musical stardom.

    Check out her taking her shot through the newest music competition, Music Nation (www.musicnation.com), an online video music competition that is giving 3 artists, one in each of the rock, pop and urban genre a recording contract with Epic Records….

    Check out her video “Lost Then Found” http://www.musicnation.com/v53d

    I wonder if any other AI alums will go this route???

  2. i find it amusing that any guy who wears a white shirt and black tie, or has facial hair is dubbed as a JT wanna be. as for the shorts and t-shirt, it’s not a fashion competition or job interview. why can’t people just be themselves?

  3. We will see a lot more of Chris Richardson I am…whether it be on American Idol or out somewhere on his own. He is wonderful

  4. You did good Chris, IM a native here in Va. Beach, VA and you did awesome…….IM going to keep my votes for you and try not to let us down!

    Brandon

  5. i went to high school with him. he’s a sweetheart, and extremely talented. he’s come a long way, looks wise, i would say. good luck, chris!

  6. Does anyone know where he worked at besides Hooters? I live in Norfolk, and I know I have seen him somewhere before!

  7. I am rooting for Chris all the way 🙂 he is awesome and deftnly a look a like with JT. What high school did he go to, in Chesapeake? I am from the Chesapeake **as we call it** The Peake!

  8. What High School did Chris attend? Was it Indian River, Deep Creek, Oscar Smith, Hickory, Great Bridge, Western Branch…Please let me know! B/c I went to Indian River c/o 01……Greenbrier Area 🙂

  9. Chris Richardson has absolutely no words to describe his talent; he looks absolutely nothing like jt… i think jt is an understatement to what i think chris’ entire persona could bring to young girls. Good luck Chris… you are talented, beyond my dream boyfriend… mysteriously charming and cute. He’s def. manlier than jt. Look at those guns… and that innocently gorgeous smile! I want Chris to come to my crib!

  11. My gosh! I love Chris. I think he’s hot but I love his talent too. Im sick of people bashing him thinking hes a JT wannabe when he’s clearly stated that he hates being compared to anyone. AHHH! I HOPE HE MAKES THE TOP 12 AT LEAST. So I can drool at the AI6 tour. Haha!!

  12. Chris is amazing!!!! I’m from Virginia Beach and it’s so awesome to finally have someone from here and is awesome!! Go chris!! woohoo!

  13. I think Chris is so hot and he reminds me of Justin Timberlake a lot. I am the biggest JT fan ever. He sings just like him, oh my gosh.

  14. he, not only is gorgeous, but his song this week was hot, damn………………………………………anyways, he will be in the top 4. Betcha???!!!!!!

  15. No doubt that Chris Richardson is THE HOTTEST guy on Season 6. He can sing, he looks good….damn good. Go Chris! Im with him all the way! Oh, and dont compare him to JT…..he doesnt like it. lol

  16. Chris Richardson – check out Collective Soul’s “Better Now” for a winner. Take of look at Roxy Music/Bryan Ferry’s style on how to capture the camera and widen your mass appeal. The women can really command the room with their voices – the guys are going to need to tackle with full voices as well to be in the final voting.

  17. He’s a great singer and I hope he goes far. Even if he doesn’t win AI, I’m sure someone will spot his good looks and great singing and sign him up.

  18. he’s HOT!!!! i don’t see the JT resemblance at all. love you chris i’ll be voting for you every week like 1029120398120938 times ;);)

  19. i saw the other day geek in tha pink and he caught my eye!woooow he’s now my favorite and what i like about him is that he’s not only hot, or talented, or a seetheart…but i like his laugh too! it made me laugh!!

  20. he looks amazingly like my deceased husband. which is not a problem whatso ever! my husband was from the same area as chris. just wandered if related?

  21. I appreciate all of yalls support on here about my cousin. My family really appreciates it… Chris is everything that you guys are saying… he is so down to earth a family man… and just a sweetheart with a great personality… Thanks for the support yall!

  22. Chris looks like my 22 year old son’s identical twin. It’s incredibly uncanny. The hair, shape of his face, facial hair, body, clothing style, sweet, sweet smile, personality, etc., and our son sings like an angel as well. My husband and I feel like we’re watching our young man up there on the stage every week. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that he make it all the way, as well as our votes!! What a wonderful talent he has! Whatever happens, know it’s what is supposed to happen and good things will come out of this experience for you. Keep on keeping it real, Chris! We’re with you!!

  23. OMG… I AM IN LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE WITH CHRIS.. I LIKED HIM EVER SINCE THE AUDITION STAGE AND I ABSOLUTELY HOPE HE WINS AMERICAN IDOL.. BUT IF HE DOESNT HE WILL STILL BE MY IDOL![=

  24. I like him alot too, but I think Blake is his serious competiton.
    Chris knows what songs to sing. They are trying to portray him a a ladies man especially at the end of his audition when three girls were runnig to go hug him.

  25. Omg I love Chris. He has such great talent, and hes amazingly handsome! I voted for him like 10 times last weds. night.

    Hi Chris’s cousin, tell him i said hi! lol

  26. I think he looks way better than JT. I mean look at those eyes and that smile. Chris if you have a chance to read this keep this in mind. The only competition I see you having is Blake and Chris Sligh. Blake b/c he’s different and Sligh cause he has a funny personality and a decent voice. Just keep doing your different twist to songs and make love to the camera when your singing. Even if you don’t win if you at least get to the top 6 and land a record deal you’ve got it made. I mean look at Daughtry and where is Taylor Hicks??????????

  27. i love justin timberlake & i LOVEEE chris richardson, he’s just way too adorablee n sweettt, n hes from VA so hollaaa!! xoxoxxo

  28. I have not bought one American Idol album yet. I am tempted to buy a couple though. I tell you there is something so awesome about Chris’ voice. I am hoping he wins!! I also really love his attitude on the show. He comes across as very genuine and I really admire that. His song selection has been great too.

  29. He was so super hot when he sang at the feb. 14th show. he is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo hot

  30. Chris keep doing that cute thing because its working for me and i think that the only comp u have is blake because he is crazy but not as cute as you!!!!!!!!!!! xoxoxoxoxoxo

  31. i love you and everyone who i know is voting for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you are super hottt luv you! xoxoxoxo

  32. I love you. i hope you go far and i hope that you are single lol hehehehe i love you good luck. go all the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. After seeing his ‘Gay Soul’ version of Don’t Let the Sun Catch You Cryin’…

    He needs to be banished from performing EVER again…

  34. christopher is very very very cool!! OMG I love him very much. he is so cute, handsome, smart, kind, good singer, his smile makes me wanna scream,, Ah….. love you chris.
    i think he will be in top 5.

  35. I truly believe that Chris can win this competition. Not only is he beautiful on the outside, but he is extremely talented and America knows it. He has the most cool and down to earth personality on the show and it just radiates through your tv when he performs. Chris if your reading this, don’t change anything about yourself for this competition and by the way, your performance of “Don’t let the sun catch you cryin” WAS the best vocal. What a way to make those panties drop, heh?

  36. I think Chris could potentially win the competition. I do think that his major competitors are Blake and Chris but he could totally out beat them! Not to mention—he was pudgy and I LOVE THAT!:)

  37. he isnt jsut the most attractinve man alive, but also the cutest, he has the cutest eyes. I hope he wins!!!

  38. I LOVE YOU CHRIS RICHARDSON!!!! You are my favorite by far and I hope you win!!! I’m going to marry you Chris !!!

  39. i don’t know the contractual obligations of the “runners up” or whatever they’re called on the show,but isn’t he better off not winning?The “winner” seems to basically be AI’s slaves for a few years/CD’s..

  40. omg omg omg he issssssssss sooooooooooooooooooo hott i no omg and i clicked on the myspace page thing and it sed it expired

  41. OMG! Chris is soooooooooooooooo much hotter than JT!!!!
    I seriously think he is and he has a better voice then JT!
    no offense I do liek JT

  42. ok WHATEVER annonymous you cant see. this guy right her is fucking gorgeous! i would do ANYTHING to have chris…even if it was just for a little bit 🙂

  43. omg…i’ve loved chris ever since his audition and nothing’s going to change that. I guess he resembles JT kind of, but i like chris way better!
    Idk, he’s one of the most gorgeous guys I’ve seen on AI, him, and Chris Daughtry!

  44. Chris is one of the HOTTEST guys i know. I would like to see much more of him (at least shirtless)

  45. Ohh My Goodness!! He is sooo hott! and that Chris Sligh is gone now his only compitition is Blake! But I think he can so win!!! He sounds so nice and he is reallly cute his eyes are adorable and I am from VA so it would be nice to have a virginian win this time! Elliot was close but chris will so win!!! Damn, he is HOTT!!!!!

  46. the only reason why I love watching AI is all because of my CHRIS RICHARDSON, I hope he will be the NEXT IDOL. But if not i bet he’ll get lotsa offers from many producers.

  47. Brian needs to stop hating on Chris. Brian’s just mad that Chris looks better than him and that Chris has all the ladies and he doesn’t. Shut Up Brian, you bitch! Chris is a sexy ass guy…GO CHRIS. GIVE ME A CD SIGNED BY YOU (WHEN YOU MAKE ONE)

  48. omg he is a hotty!!
    oh and this is no lie but he lives a couple streets away from my house!
    i am even goin to the high school he went to next year!!
    peace yall

  49. The judges keep knocking Chris down, and putting up Blake on a pedestal. Chris sang a better ballad (during the 60’s episode) than Blake did (during the Gwen Stefanie episode). Why do the judges, especially Simon, criticize those who do not step outside the genre/theme for the week? Voice coach says “do it this way” but Simon says “why did you do it this way?” Chris sang beautifully from the heart (with commercial appeal) — even without the outside-the-box “beat box” schtick.

  50. Chris Richardson Does remind me of justin timberlake because of the clothes, the beard, and the whining high pitched voice. Lately, The exhaustion of being the top 9 tells him he needs to shave a little more!

  51. i love chris, i think that maybe is the way he dresses but unless he does not have the girly voice of justin. GOOD LUCK CHRIS!!! I love you, i think you´re the best, the hottest no matter what anyone says. LOVE YOU CHRIS

  52. Omgsh i love chris richardson. i like blake 2 but once i saw chris audition ive loved him ever since. he is soooooo hott! i know he’s going to win AI for sure.

  76. okay, chris is definetly the hottest on that show, theres like no competition. i think hes so cute.
    he looks nothing just justin timberlake, who faded out after NSync ended and then came back years later singing like a chick.
