 After winning Tampa Bay Idol in 2008, Cesar De La Rosa auditioned for the real American Idol — and did so well in front of Randy, Paula and Simon that he actually made it to Hollywood.

The native Puerto Rican didn’t make it, but he showed enough talent to attract attention for his self-titled debut album, released earlier this year. The songs he’s posted online so far show a highly polished and catchy blend of pop, rock and R&B, which answers the question of what happens to those Idols who don’t quite make it to the top 12. Guess what? They’re still pretty talented.
