Many are saying the ratings aren’t what they used to be for American Idol, but it’s sure got some great stories to keep audiences tuned in. Last week, there was a audition from a young man who had a stutter problem since the age of 6. The judge couldn’t even understand him when he entered the room, but sang like an angel and of course made it to Hollywood.
One of this week’s highlights is Micah Johnson, who has a speech impairment due to a nerve being harmed during a surgery when he was having his tonsils removed. The judges were even leaning in to try to understand him. But, when given the cue to sing, it was AMAZING when he sang his own rendition of Zac Brown Band’s “Chicken Fried”. Just WOW! See for yourself!
