Constantine on American Idol.

Constantine James Maroulis (Κωνσταντινος Μαροθλισ) /känstæntĒn mǎrūlǐs/ (born September 17, 1975 in New York) is a Greek-American rock singer and songwriter. Best known as "Roger Davis" in the 2003 national tour of Rent and later a recurring contestant on the fourth season of American Idol, Maroulis also appeared in Elimidate and had very small roles in Law and Order: SVU and Astro Boy.

Maroulis was a finalist on American Idol. Since the age limit was raised from 24 to 28 for the fourth season, Maroulis was the oldest person to ever audition and participate on the show. Throughout the entire season, he and Bo Bice were nicknamed "the two rockers" since their long hair and the songs they used in the competition made them stand out from the softer, more pop-oriented melodies as well as the more conservative images of previous and contemporary contestants. A 2002 graduate of the Boston Conservatory, Maroulis makes a living singing, acting, and writing. He is currently the lead singer of the hard-rock band Pray for the Soul of Betty. Contrary to what was portrayed on the reality TV series, he did not quit his band, only took a temporary leave of absence to join American Idol. He returned after he was voted off.

On April 27, 2005, Maroulis, who received over 35 million votes over the course of the season, was voted off American Idol after he performed Nickelback's "How You Remind Me" during 2000's music week. His sixth-place ouster caused some surprise in some fans and is noted as having made Paula Abdul cry. Less than a week before the untimely vote-off, Pray for the Soul of Betty, through a distribution deal made with Koch Entertainment, announced the May 10 release of their epynomic debut of their pre-recorded, self-produced CD on their own label, Baby Julius Productions. Maroulis can also be heard on the American Idol Season 4: The Showstoppers with "My Funny Valentine." His rendition of the Queen classic "Bohemian Rhapsody" earned him the praise of judges, including the usually harsh Simon Cowell. Maroulis later recorded a studio version of the track for Killer Queen: A Tribute to Queen. The CD was released on August 9, 2005.

As of October 2005, Maroulis was in negotiations to star in his own sitcom on the ABC network, courtesy of Grammnet Productions, owned by former Cheers star Kelsey Grammer. ABC signed a talent holding deal with Maroulis, giving the network the option of casting him in other projects--comedy or drama.

In August 2001, Maroulis portrayed a drag queen in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. , , , , .
