Watch: Ricky Martin and “Idol” Alum William Hung Finally Performed “She Bangs” Together

Hung famously performed the Martin hit for his American Idol audition in 2004.

Ricky Martin has collaborated with many legendary artists. Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, and Madonna to name a few. But on Saturday (June 2), Ricky Martin wrapped his six-show stay at the Monte Carlo Theater in Las Vegas by bringing his fans a duet they’ve been craving for over a decade—a duet with American Idol star William Hung.

In 2004, the world was introduced to Hung during his audition on season three of Idol. Before going viral was a thing, Hung’s rousing cover of Martin’s 2000 hit “She Bangs,” with his lackluster vocals and memorable dance moves, had America laughing for weeks.

Though the judges didn’t move Hung on to the next round of auditions in Hollywood, he became a pop culture sensation appearing on late night programs and even securing a record deal.

The details are unknown, but during his final Vegas show, Martin invited Hung on stage to perform the song together for the first time ever.

Hung fans hoping the Idol contestant will restart the clock on his 15-minutes of fame shouldn’t get his hopes up. According to posts on his Instagram page, Hung has given up his pop star days and is now a traveling motivational speaker.
