"Bad Luck," "Free Like the Wind," and "Waltz of the Prisoner" were top crowd pleasers as convicts faced off at a prison in Lima to sing in the Peruvian underworld's version of the popular TV show "American Idol."

Augusto Flores won first prize for a song he wrote called "Your Visit," about waiting for news from his family and friends.

He won a guitar, a trophy and a pair of shoes. Winners of "American Idol" competitions, which gives ordinary people a chance at stardom, win recording contracts and global fame.

Not all of the contestants made it to the finals of the "Melodies of Freedom" competition, billed as a settling of scores between a dozen convicts from prisons across Peru's biggest city.
