Australian rockers INXS chose Canadian J.D. Fortune as their new singer before a U.S. TV audience.
Fortune, 31, is a former Elvis impersonator who said he once lived out of his car when he failed to live up to his name.
The "new" band's first single, "Easy, Easy," was released Wednesday on Epic Records and the album "Switch" -- the first for INXS since Hutchence's 1997 suicide -- comes out Nov. 29.
INXS will take its new frontman on a world tour early next year.
It wasn't all bad news for Casey, however, as INXS said on air they want to talk to him about "about possibly opening up for us on our upcoming world tour."
