    Jay Copeland is a 23 year old musician from Salisbury, Maryland.

    He graduated from university two years ago, majoring in music.

    After singing a Stevie Wonder song during his audition, Jay received a platinum ticket.

    The 23-year-old country singer is from Winchester, Tennessee, and her real name is Hunter Wolkonowski.

    She graduated from Middle Tennessee State University.

  • Top 7: Fritz Hager

    Fritz Hager III, 17, is from Tyler, Texas.

    Last week, the judges gave Fritz three song options, with each judge selecting a song to perform.

    Katy Perry selected The Beach Boys’ God Only Knows, and Lionel Richie gave her the Perfect option by Ed Sheeran.

    Hager ultimately chose the option of Luke Bryan from Wonderwall by Oasis and said he was thrilled when he heard he could portray him.

    After his performance, Bryan said he chose the song as a curve ball, and his inspiration for featuring it as an option came from hearing Hager getting ready with his band during a soundcheck in Las Vegas.

  • Top 7: Christian Guardino

    Christian Guardino, 21, joined American Idol for his 20th season and impacted the judges for his resounding voice and his ability to overcome the setbacks and struggles he encountered throughout his life.

    He was diagnosed with a rare genetic eye disease, Leber congenital amaurosis, which affects the retina, impairing the individual’s vision.

    His remaining vision continued to deteriorate as he got older, but when he reached his teens, Guardino took part in a gene therapy trial.

    The trial was successful and restored his eyesight to around 80%.
