American Idol 2016 singer Trent Harmon has not had it easy in Hollywood. After a terrific audition that landed him a Golden Ticket, Trent came down with a nasty case of mono. Doctors told him he needed to rest and take it easy, but he wasn’t about to give up on his American Idol dream. So he pushed on, despite being forced to perform during group round as a group of just one person so he wouldn’t infect anyone else.
Trent’s group round performance could have been better, but the American Idol judges believed he deserved another chance to impress them. Apparently he did just that in the last solo round of Hollywood Week with his performance of “Tiny Dancer” by Elton John. The celebrity panel felt he shined during his solo, and gave Trent a pass to the Top 24. Then firmly told him to stay away from them so they don’t make him sick!
