Evan Ruggiero Audition On American Idol 2013

Evan Ruggiero on American Idol 2013

The first backstories we heard last night on the American Idol 2013 premiere was that of Evan Ruggiero. Evan fought through a battle with cancer and regained his opportunity to pursue his passion for music, but his audition didn’t go as he had hoped.

Evan performed Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours” and then, at Randy’s request for some guitar, Bon Jovi’s “Dead or Alive.” Both were good performances, and Branden suggested he should be sent on to Hollywood, but the judges weren’t buying it.

Watch Evan’s performance audition and see if you think he should have received a Golden Ticket to Hollywood.
