Nope, it doesn't seem like these two would have anything in common, musically or culturally. It's pretty difficult to imagine Chris Daughtry ever uttering the line "I wanna take a ride on your disco stick," for instance, or Lady Gaga ever covering a Fuel tune.
But the bottom line is, a good song is a good song is a good song. And there's no denying that Gaga's "Poker Face" is a great song. Even Chris can't deny it. So recently when he performed acoustic and solo on a German radio station, he put on his best poker face and played this dead-serious, surprisingly solid version of Lady Gaga's big crossover pop hit:
While it's doubtful that Chris will be working with Gaga's producer RedOne any time soon (as fellow Idol rocker Adam Lambert is currently doing), I must commend Chris for--as Simon Cowell or Paula Abdul might say--making this song his own.
