Illinois Guy with Awesome Hair Gets Golden Ticket on ‘American Idol’
Not only did Sam score some points with the judges for his vocal talent, he impressed them with his awesome hair.
Sam Sohmer a.k.a. Samothias took the stage last night on American Idol and wowed the judges with his rendition of 'Tennessee Whiskey' by Chris Stapleton.
Within the first ten seconds of Sam's audition I could tell he was heading to Hollywood.
Most contestants get to sing for the judges and then the judges vote, but with Sam, they wanted to hear him do more and even compared him to Prince.
I've had the pleasure of talking with Sam before his audition and he shared his Olive Garden cravings and afterwards when he told me all about meeting the judges and the excitement of Hollywood week.
If you missed Sam's audition, here you go!
