Lazaro Arbos Auditions On American Idol 2013


There are a lot of American Idol backstories that I tend to shrug off or poke fun of, but one American Idol 2013 backstory from Thursday night’s Chicago auditions, had a diffract effect on me. It’s because it was a legit story. It was one that had to be told because it couldn’t be ignored or hidden or faked.

I’m of course talking about Lazaro Arbos. His story isn’t that he was on drugs or almost died from an exploding ski lift or anything, he just simply stammers. He says the issues costs him friends and other things in life. But when he sings, he doesn’t stammer. He sings crisp and clear and emotionally. He was one of the better auditions from the first two nights of this season.

Let’s take another look at his audition. Watch his story and his audition to “Bridge Over Troubled Water” below.

  1. Love u Lazaro!! Your story is so much like my child. He is 12 and has struggled with stuttering since he was 2. His condition is very severe. Thank u for sharing your story:))

  2. I certainly liked him a lot and am glad the judges voted him in. I thought his voice was nice and he has good range–but I wouldn’t call him a standout.
