Before this singer’s audition, he pretended to play football with Ryan Seacrest. Shanon is a big guy who plays defensive tackle. They ran around the room, and Ryan fell when trying to hurdle a chair. He then claimed he scored a touchdown.
Shanon Wilson is 24 and from Houston, Texas. He is big on singing, church, and football. He sang Luke James’s “I Want You.” Shanon hit some really high notes. I am not huge fan of this kind of music usually. But that was a solid performance that deserved a trip to Hollywood. The guy has a huge range. The high notes didn’t really have much power, but he was good overall.
The part with judges’ commnents was brief in this audition segment. But Wilson definitely got 3 votes to move forward to Hollywood.
