  • William Hung (January 13, 1983) is a Hong Kong-born American former singer. Hung first gained fame for his off-key audition of Ricky Martin's "She Bangs" on the third season of the FOX singing competition series American Idol. He battled against Ricky in the episode "Season Finale."
  • William Hung appears as himself, as the leader of the band Hung Jury which appears in Mock Trial with J. Reinhold. In legal terms, a "hung jury" is a deadlocked jury that cannot agree upon a verdict. He originally gained fame in 2004 as a result of his off-key audition performance of Ricky Martin's hit song "She Bangs" on American Idol.
  • Slyly using his name to gain an advantage, William Hung pursued a future in front of cameras by trying out as talent for adult movies, causing him to be responsible for giving the people of Hong Kong a stereotypically negative image. However, casting had issues with Hung's rampant unfamiliarity with sex and ridiculously tiny package. Hung ended up as a cameraman on adult movies, but eventually ruined every shot he worked on, as he would break into "She Bangs" every time a scene would start shooting.

  • Slyly using his name to gain an advantage, William Hung pursued a future in front of cameras by trying out as talent for adult movies, causing him to be responsible for giving the people of Hong Kong a stereotypically negative image. However, casting had issues with Hung's rampant unfamiliarity with sex and ridiculously tiny package. Hung ended up as a cameraman on adult movies, but eventually ruined every shot he worked on, as he would break into "She Bangs" every time a scene would start shooting. His luck changed after winning a local singing talent contest, held in a living room within his house where he was the only contestant and also served as judge. Inspired, Hung ended up singing at local town meetings and events. Although Hung has always claimed he was asked to perform at these functions, the grand majority of the time he was actually asked, by the Mayor, to "Stop, stop...please fucking stop". The tide finally turned when the third season of American Idol set up in San Francisco, September of 2003. Although the audition was naturally atrocious, much of what happened next never aired on television. Insiders close to the show reveal that judge Simon Cowell vomited while Hung sang and danced like a little idiot. Then, to the surprise of many, Cowell lunged at Hung, physically attacking him while still vomiting. Hung continued to sing while the crew, Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul pried Cowell off. After calming down and cleaning up, the judges sat down and gave their thoughts. Cowell called Hung a "dick" and a "little fucking retard". Jackson and Abdul were slightly less abrasive. "You have a great attitude", chirped Abdul, "but you're all fucked up". "Good luck to you, you need to be locked up somewhere", said Jackson.
