Young Zach D'Onofrio may not sound like it when he speaks, but he's got a Sinatra-style singing voice that had judge Katy Perry dancing with him-and judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie dancing with each other!
Just North of Lawton is Apache, Oklahoma.
Katy, 33, who is a judge on the US TV talent show, got up on stage to dance with contestant Michelle Sussett during her try-out. Thaddeus performed Sweedish House Mafia's 'Don't You Worry Child.' Check it out above. At one point, he weighed 390 pounds and considered taking his own life, but instead, he turned himself around and lost 162 pounds and counting.
In New Orleans, Laine Hardy sang "Hurricane", playing guitar and adding a lot of rasp.
Danny Amendola expected to sign with Miami Dolphins
However, he did his best work during the playoffs, where he caught 33 balls for 348 yards with two touchdowns in three games. As for the Patriots, they should still be fine at wide receiver for next season even with Amendola's absence.
Trevor Holmes, 27, captivated Katy's attention and later revealed that he's had a longtime crush on her, though he now has a girlfriend. William Casanova, 26, is the next artist to audition, and he sings "A Song For You" for the judges. He secured a golden ticket easily. Katy declared he could be "top 10", and called him "the best male singer we've seen so far". Sussett kicked off her audition performance by singing an a cappella song in Spanish, before she suddenly stopped to play music from her portable speaker.
Katy Perry slips after her dance battle.
For her judging gig on American Idol, she says she keeps her look "classic with a twist, to last all day". They all got golden tickets. She came in to the audition room with her sister Layla (who was just barely old enough to audition herself) and the two both charmed the judges.
The singer laughed it off and Lionel joked: "There are some things you have to do for the business!"
