A Thousand Different Ways

Like flunking out of a junior college, making an album this soul-suckingly awful must have taken some hard work. Aiken and his handlers didn't just pick out any old Celine Dion or Bryan Adams song — they went straight to the bottom of the well and chose "Because You Loved Me" and "Everything I Do (I Do It for You)." Toss in some Richard Marx, a flute and a cheesy symphony and you've got the worst episode of American Idol ever.
