American Idol judge Luke Bryan shouted “Thank You Jesus” on national television after an amazing audition by a 17-year-old boy.
Alex Miller is a 17-year-old high school student from Gerard County in Kentucky. The teen has been a fan of small-town living and loves to work on his grandfather’s farm. However, music is his biggest passion.
Music has not just been his passion, it has also helped him cope up with the hardships he faced when he was younger.
“Music means everything to me,” Alex said during an interview with American Idol. “Whenever I was young, my parents divorced and it was a way for me to cope with that and release a lot of that energy.”
Since he was seven, he has been performing in his small town, but he is ready to take his music to the big stage. The young aspiring musician auditioned in the current season of American Idol. Alex played a country-style original song written for his ex-girlfriend titled “I’m Over You, So Get Over Me.”
“Well time and time again I tried
And just when I get you off my mind
You come crawling on your knees, falling, crying, and begging ‘please’
But I’m over you, so get over me”
The young country boy gave a wonderful performance that painted a smile on the judges’ faces. As he ended his audition piece, Luke Bryan was so thrilled that he even praised the Lord!
“Thank You, Jesus,” Luke shouted.
The music legend Lionel Richie also complimented Alex’s performance and even his “contagious” personality.
“I am thrilled,” Lionel said to the American Idol contestant. “Your personality is just infectious.”
Alex earned three ‘yes’ voted from all the judges. They altogether delivered the great news to his family back in Lancaster. The 17-year-old singer earned a Golden Ticket.
