constantine Constantine Maroulis returned to his American Idol roots Thursday night and performed his version of The Righteous Brothers’ classic tune, “Unchained Melody.”

“I was really nervous to be honest,” said the season four American Idol vet.  “I perform in front of a couple of thousand people every single night on Rock of Ages and this was intense.  It was very surreal for me but I had a great time and it all happened so fast.  But I felt pretty good about it.”

Since his Idol days, Maroulis released his self titled album in 2007 and scored a Tony nomination as Drew in Rock of Ages (Mexican actor Diego Gonzalez Boneta is playing the role in the film version).  “Unchained Melody” is currently available on iTunes and Maroulis will include the track on his next album.  “Just going to get back to the grind after the (Rock of Ages) tour and do some shows and do some more acting and just try to keep it all moving along,” said Maroulis.
