American Idol

OK, I admit it. I LOVE American Idol!! Say what you will, but I'm hooked.
I heard an interesting discussion on the radio this morning about Chris Daughtry (the rocker). Last week he sang Walk the Line by Johnny Cash. The judges loved it stating that he really made the song "his own". Apparantly, the band Live already covered this song and oddly enough, Chris' version and Live's version sound almost exactly the same.
The debate is whether or not he should have mentioned that version. Fans are crying foul that he copied this version. Isn't everyone copying though? Aren't they all cover songs?
It's kinda like telling a joke. Do I have to say I heard it on Letterman last night? Don't most people assume I heard it somewhere and am now repeating it?
What's the big deal?
