Idol Extra has Ace Young up its sleeve

Ace Young has spent much of his post-American Idol time trying to cash in on his fifteen minutes, appearing on various talk shows, reality shows, and even an episode of Bones. Now he finally has a gig that will last longer than a few minutes.

The curly-haired crooner has been tapped as the host of the Fox Reality Channel program American Idol Extra, which is basically a quick fix for Idol addicts (they need their fix, man!) when the show isn't on the air. It covers the background of contestants and holds interviews with recently booted hopefuls.

Joining Ace will be Jillian Reynolds (nee Barberie), who has bounced around several Fox properties, including their sports coverage. This year's Idol Extra will be shot from the American Idol stage for the first time. This season will premiere March 26.

Young was featured in the fifth season of American Idol and finished in seventh place.

I won't watch cause I haven't watched reality tv since he was booted from American Idol in season five... But I love Ace. He's an incredible performer and seems like a great person based on all he's done since he was on Idol.

Oops, forgot this. Ace started a charity organization called "Highroller's with Heart" along with his fans. They raised $100,000 in a few short months to build an amenities wing on the children hospital in Denver. They are still raising money! Also, he is the Celebrity Ambassador for the Jerry Lewis Telethon. Still think he's a loser??????? I think we need more people like Ace Young!

Wow...apparently most of you, even the writer of the article has no idea what Ace has really been up to. He released his debut self-titled Album "ACE YOUNG" in July and was in Broadway's GREASE playing the role of Kenickie. He is now working on his second album and is writing for other peoples albums as well. He also co-wrote the song "It Not Over" with Chris Daughtry in which they received a grammy nominiation for. Ace is an awesome talent and an awesome guy!

I think Ace should have lasted longer than he did when he was on Idol. It's good to see him back.

How is this an "ace" up their sleeve? Pardon the pun! Does anyone even really remember Ace Young as anything other than a Creeper that made weird faces when he sang?
