The Rottweiler is Chris Daughtry, who came to fame on “American Idol” and is now lead singer in the band Daughtry.

The Rottweiler sounded just like Daughtry when he rocked the house in week 1 with his cover of the Hall & Oates hit “Maneater” and then stormed the stage in week 5 with his version of “Love Runs Out” by OneRepublic.

The Rottweiler says that he wants to show the world that “it’s not over” when it comes to his career. That is the title of Daughtry’s first big hit in 2006.

The Rottweiler says he became famous overnight; Daughtry was the breakout star of season 5 of “American Idol” in 2006.
