Michael Sarver – Phoenix – 27 – Jaspar TX

Michael, married with two children, works as a roughneck on an oil rig, the 5th most dangerous job in the world he says. But dont let that fool you. What he really wants to do is croon Boyz II Men tunes. He also plays piano, drums and guitar.

A likable guy, Michael advanced to the Top 12/13 via a wonky performance of Gavin DeGraw’s “I Don’t Wanna Be” and a little help from Simon Cowell who said he hoped America would give Michael a second chance.   They did.

Michael’s going to have to step it up if he hopes to stick around the competition for awhile.   He swears he’s not a country singer, but incorporating country into his performances could help set him apart from the pack.
