Seasons 1 & 2 Designer Daniel Franco Is Following His Bliss ... to "American Idol"

By CaitlinBergmann Wed., Jan. 27, 2010 ,2:22 pm EST

If you're new to "Project Runway," you'll think that this is just another guy with a pseudo-Adam Lambert haircut, but if you've been watching since the beginning, you'll have a special place in your heart for Season 1 and 2 veteran Daniel Franco. He looms large in the legend of "Runway," having the distinct honor of being the first "Auf'd" contestant in the history of the show, as well as the only contestant to appear in two seasons!

Seemingly he "followed his bliss" all the way to the Los Angeles auditions, where Simon, Randy, Kara and guest judge Avril Lavigne have apparently never hummed "Daniel Franco, Where Did You Go?" to themselves. (He's the one claiming to be the offspring of Lambert and UK sensation Susan Boyle.)


Thanks to our pals Tom & Lorenzo for alerting us of this confusing, amusing news. Now, where is the footage of him singing?!
