2. Read and Prepare - Read the introduction and prepare to hear the audio.

If we were to snoop around your room, what would we find? Do you have any celebrity crushes? Is there a picture of Amy Winehouse on your desktop? Is there a shot of Brad Pitt on the inside of a door?

People like to hide pictures of their crushes in private places. TV shows about students often show them putting pictures of people they like on the inside of their locker.

How many lockers around the world do you think have a picture of Chris Daughtry on the inside? Even though he didn’t win American Idol, he’s the second most popular musician to appear on the show. His band, Daughtry, also made one of the most successful albums of last year.

And…he’s cute. Don’t beleive us? Ask Kevin about it. Amanda did.


1. Listen and Read - Listen to the audio and read the dialog at the same time.

2. Study - Read the dialog again to see how the vocab words are used.





Kevin:  So did you have fun last night at the game night at my place?

Amanda:  It was so fun. And I have a little bit of a confession.

Kevin:  What? What?

Amanda:  I was sneaking around your room and in your closet trying on some of your jeans, and…

Kevin:  Oh no…

Amanda:  I saw a Chris Daughtry poster on the inside of your closet. What’s up with that?

Kevin:  Um…well…it’s sort of my secret, like, musical crush.

Amanda:  I think that’s cool because no one really knows about him.

Kevin:  Well, I didn’t know any of my friends knew about him but apparently you do so…It’s okay, though.

Amanda:  I do.

Kevin:  He’s really talented. Like, he’s really, I think, an amazing artist.

Amanda:  He’s very raw and he has the additional talent of playing the guitar which a lot of the winners of American Idol...it’s just vocal. Not that that’s not something to be proud of, but you know.

Kevin:  I just think he’s really talented. Very attractive.

Amanda:  Obviously. Inside of the closet door. That’s pretty good placement, I think, in a room, you know? It’s one notch down from the ceiling.

Kevin:  Well, you know, what can I say? You caught me.

Amanda:  I did.

When Kevin had some friends over to play games, Amanda sneaked into his room and poked around a little. She found a picture of Chris Daughtry on the inside of his closet door.

Kevin immediately fesses up that he has a crush on Daughtry and thinks he’s really talented. Amanda agrees. Daughtry is one of the only contestants on American Idol who also plays an instrument.

Amanda teases Kevin a little bit about the picture because the inside of the closet door is a pretty personal place to hide a picture.

Who is your favorite American Idol star? Is there a picture of him or her hidden in your room somewhere?
