American Idol 2016 Denver Audition – John Wayne Schulz

John Wayne Schulz – The Dance by Garth Brooks – When John walks into the room, Harry calls him a “big handsome cowboy.” Jlo remembers him from season 10. It came down to him and Scotty McCreery in Hollywood before the Top 24, and we all know what happened to Scotty–he went on to win season 10. In the end, John was happy to be home. His mom was sick with cancer and passed away a few months later. He wants to give Idol another shot before it’s all over. Of course, he’s doing it all for his late mother. This is a sweet return story. He sings the song like a guy who’s been through some heartache, which obviously he has. He’s got an easy vocal delivery and a lovely country twang. And a cowboy hat. Keith liked that his rendition wasn’t a Garth impression. Jlo really enjoyed listening to him. Harry calls John’s audition a “succinct” performance. 3 yesses
