Lee Jean – 15 – Bluffton SC – I See Fire by Ed Sheeran – He comes from a HUGE family. His mom is raising a niece. Tragedy. Lee’s older brother was killed in an accident in 2012. He believed Lee would grow up to do big things. “Bring it home for DJ,” says mama. The young singer wants to earn a golden ticket for his big brother.  Hm. He’s African American, so it’s a surprise when he busts out a singer songwriter vibe, with guitar. But he’s so so green. He has moments that reveal artistry, but at this point, his vocals are all over the place. I can imagine a flame out if he ever makes it to the lives. He’s cute as hell though. Jlo wants to pinch his cheeks. Keith and Harry are willing to give him a shot, even with his issues.  Three yesses.
