HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - Austin Percario made it to Hollywood and made it through the first and second cut in the Hollywood or Home round.
New this year, many of the contestants were made to sing for their "Idol" lives before they even unpacked their bags.
"American Idol" kicked off Hollywood Week on Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 8 p.m. on FOX.
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."
