American Idol Season 11 contestant Creighton Fraker is a 28-year-old singer/songwriter who lives in Queens in New York City. He was born and raised in Brandon, South Dakota. The lead-in footage before Creighton's big audition in Pittsburgh shows him wandering around the city in bunny ears, then busking on a street corner. Judge Jennifer Lopez later fittingly calls him "Jamiroquai meets Justin Timberlake."

For his audition number before the judges, Creighton sang a song he wrote himself, prompting judge Steven Tyler to call him "sweetly insane." J.Lo then demanded Creighton sing another song, and he jumped into a lively rendition of the Jackson 5’s “Who’s Loving You.” In American Idol Season 11, "The Final Judgment: Part 1," Creighton reveals he was adopted as a baby but recently found his biological father – who was a singer in a heavy metal band in the '80s. On Flotsam and Jetsam’s official Facebook page, they cheer Creighton on: “If he makes it to the voting rounds we will need everyone to be ready to vote. You just never know. Go Creighton!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” 

In the Season 11 semifinals, Creighton earned raves from the judges for his performances of Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors."

Make sure to check out Creighton's zany official website, which declares: "preposterous vocals extraordinaire." No wonder Steven took a shine to him...
