On the March 25 episode, they get the chance to hear Lee Vasi, a gorgeous and talented 20-year-old singer from Fayetteville, North Carolina. But after some nasty social media messages about his weight and sexuality brought him down, he decided that wouldn't be the end of his American Idol story.

She successfully made it through, so she will continue her American Idol journey.

She is excited about the news of her making it to Hollywood finally coming out because many people in the area have been asking and showing their support. Check out Lee's Spanglish version below.


Grammy nominee Katy Perry was blown away by the performance of Alyssa Raghunandan, an Indian origin contestant on the American Idol show.

While tearing into the singing competition on her show Tuesday, the daytime talk show host gave country star judge Luke Bryan a pass, then dug into Perry. "When you take the time to sit back and be thankful for the things you do have, like holding this gold ticket in my hands and being that much closer to inspiring more people than I've ever inspired before". Previously, she led pop-punk band Envoi to national acclaim with songs like "From A Cage" and "Ghost".
