  • Constantine, You've come a long way baby!

    I've been watching this star since his major debut on AI. I was then made aware of his other TV show appearances on crime dramas and date shows as well as theatre shows. He is so mulit-talented and is one to keep and eye out for.

    I really liked him with his NY city band and went to three of their shows after AI. I never thought I'd be one to follow the Idol's on tour, but I did just to see him. What a fabulous showman! You think that you enjoy watching him on TV, well then a real treat is seeing him live. What energy!moreless
