Neil admits he initially dismissed the series as a karaoke competition, but quickly became a fan of the show after meeting the blonde country star. Underwood's cover of the rockers' hit song Home Sweet Home is now featured as the anthem for this season's departing contestants.
And Neil has become such a big fan of Underwood and the show that made her famous, he's now eyeing a Crue-themed night for the series' remaining singers.
