American Idol has seen a lot of weird contestants over the years, and some were actually pretty creepy. Take, for example, Paul Marturano, who auditioned in Season 7 with a song about stalking judge Paula Abdul.


The performance was so creepy that Simon Cowell ordered Paul to leave the audition room. Check it out below, and read on to find out what Paul himself had to say about the performance later on.

‘American Idol’ Contestant Sings About Stalking Paula Abdul

“This is a love song that I wrote for Paula Abdul,” Paul said before he started singing. The lyrics were definitely unsettling, to say the least. “There is this girl I know, I follow her around,” he sang to start off. “She hasn’t noticed me, it really gets me down.”

He went on to sing about breaking into Paula’s house and trying on her underwear. “I’m always thinking of her. I really think that I love her,” he sang. Randy Jackson and Paula herself laughed at the performance, while Simon sat there gobsmacked.

“If she were a doggie, I would walk her. If she were a blackboard, I would chalk her,” he continued. Eventually, Simon Cowell put a stop to the performance and told Paul he should leave.

“That was really creepy,” Simon said. “There’s something really disturbing about you.” He asked security to escort Paul out of the audition room. Paula told him it was nice meeting him before he left.


Was Paul’s Audition A Joke?

Paul’s audition for American Idol was obviously creepy, but he later confirmed to local news that it was meant to be a joke. Paul’s a comedic songwriter who has also gone by the name “Pauly Nipple.”

“I’m just a kind of normal guy with a crazy sense of humor who likes to laugh and make people laugh at anything,” he said after his audition in 2008. Although he’s released several funny songs, he also has some more serious tracks.

Paul returned to American Idol auditions the next year to perform his stalking song for the crowd and talk to auditioners. In 2015, Paul released a book called 33 Beliefs For a Happy Life. According to his Amazon bio, he’s also worked to find homes for shelter animals through Loli’s Place, Inc. Animal Rescue.
