Will Chris Daughtry Accept Fuel's Offer?
May 12, 2006

Former "Idol" frontrunner Chris Daughtry got the offer of a lifetime Thursday, and it was made exclusively on "Extra."

Multi-platinum group Fuel asked the rocker to be the band's lead singer, and the proposition created worldwide buzz. Today, the ousted "Idol" came straight to "Extra's" Terri Seymour, who showed him the band's "Extra" invitation.

"That's really cool," Chris said. "I'm flattered. You know, I don't want to say yes, and I don't want to say no right now. I just want to make sure what I decide on is the right thing for me."

Meanwhile, all of America is still talking about Chris' shocking send off, and for the first time he's revealing what he told his wife and kids back in North Carolina after finding out he had been voted off the show.

"I called her and she was like, ‘Are you okay?' And I said, ‘I'm fine.' And she was like, ‘Things happen for a reason, and you have to believe that. Things are going to be okay.'"

Chris delivered this message right to his fans, "I know they're upset, and I know its disappointing. But you know, it is what it is. And we're going to move on, and I'm going to pursue big things, and hopefully big things happen."

The most unpredictable "Idol" race ever continues Tuesday night, as the final three face off unlike any other.
