American Idol 2016 Philadelphia Audition – Isaac Cole – Love Like Crazy VIDEO

Isaac Cole – Love Like Crazy by Lee Brice –  Oh look it’s another farmboy. A Pennsylvania farm boy. He’s got a Bieber bowl cut that the stylists need to change pronto. It looks pretty rural where he’s from, but Lincoln actually isn’t far from a couple of Monongahela mill towns, that are decidedly not rural. Isaac explains that his mis He explains Cole is his middle name, and his actual last name is Irish, and unpronounceable. He’s got two songs. One a cappella, one rehearsed with a guitar. He explains that he’ll sing the a cappella choice with his guitar.  The judges laugh.  A decent vocal for a 15 year old. He sings with a mournful little catch. But at this point, he’s imitating emotion, rather than actually expressing it. Isaac is not fully baked. Jlo and Harry think there is a lot to like about him. Harry advises him to stop singing with a twang. Cause he’s NOT from the south! Good point. Keith thinks he’s not quite ready yet, but on the right road. Isaac points out they didn’t’ think Clark Beckham was ready either. Oh. Sassy kid! Aw. They were gonna say yes anyway. 3 yesses. Keith signs his guitar  and even carries his case out for him. He sees a little of himself in this kid, I guess.
