WARREN, NJ - Group night was the end of this season's American Idol run for Austin Percario, but he's made good on his promise to see him again.
Percario tweeted after being sent home,"Soooo as you guys just saw.. I got cut after group rounds! 😔 it was an incredible experience and only great things came out of it....just wanted to give a HUGE thank you to all of you guys for supporting me during this crazy ass idol journey. "
"I hope you guys continue to stay with me cause my journey is far from over...I'm releasing my EP very soon and I know you guys got my back 😉"
The American Idol judges were impressed with Percario's rendition of “Titanium” by David Guetta ft. Sia, at the audition in Boston and handed him a Golden Ticket. Keith Urban described his voice as “Justin Bieber at 5 a.m."
Besides having a familiar name in town, you may recognize him from the first season of "The X Factor." Percario auditioned with friend Emily Wilson as AusEm and eventually were paired with others in "The X Factor"-formed group “inTENsity."
