Tone deaf American Idol reject WILLIAM HUNG has been adopted as the musical mascot for the LOS ANGELES DODGERS after helping them win a string of games.

The superstitious Dodgers, who have started the baseball season in impressive style, credit their success to the fact they play Hung's awful rendition of Ricky Martin's SHE BANGS in the dressing room before games.

The Dodgers even invited Hung to film a version of the song as part of their pre-game warm-up, so it could be shown on DODGER STADIUM's big screen - but the wacky singer declined when he discovered he wouldn't be paid.

So now, the Dodgers have adopted a lizard they found running around the locker room and they've called him William Hung.
