American Idol 2016 Little Rock Audition – Ethan Kuntz – Stormy Monday VIDEO

Ethan Kuntz – Stormy Monday by the Allman Brothers – At the tables during cattle call, Kris Allen gives Ethan kudos for coming out at 15. He’s from Nashville, Arkansas. His family owns an American Foxhound kennel. The dogs are his buds! He’s the lead guitarist in a blues band. “Blues and southern rock are my genres,” he declares, confidently. Knowing that is half the battle, and impressive at such a young age. The vocals. He sounds. So. Young. I’ll bet his voice is still changing. He’s still at the imitative stage. A couple of years to find his own sound would do him good. BUT he’s got a really effortless growl and he sings assuredly and with passion. What to do? I’d say no, to be honest. Harry is sure that music is his thing. But maybe he’s too young. He wonders if he’s ready. Jennifer disagrees. She feels he’s an artist. He’ll find his way around challenges. Keith is in the middle and TORN. And that’s the cue to go to break…back from break…Keith relents and says yes. Of course, because there has yet to be a heartbreaking no vote among these three. Harry says no Jlo says yes. Keith says Yes Kid seems to have a good head on his shoulders, though. I think he’ll hack it emotionally, at least.
