American Idol producers dug Malcolm Allen so much, that they released his season 13 Austin audition to Youtube as a preview.

The 21 year old deli grocer from Wrightsville, Arkansas wowed the panel with a rendition of Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition.”

“He’s a natural,” murmurs Jennifer Lopez as she watches. She adds, “It’s so natural, I want to throw this pen at you!”
