Perhaps no one auditioner during the most recent season of ‘American Idol’ illuminated star quality quite like Johnny Keyser. From his ridiculously good audition in St. Louis (he sang “A Change Is Gonna Come” in case you forgot), to his fantastic performances during Hollywood Week, Johnny was The Ashley’s early favorite. In fact, she predicted Johnny would be one of the two contestants left standing at the finale.
The Ashley, along with most of America, was shocked when, seemingly without any explanation, Johnny was cut during Vegas Week. He had earned rave reviews from the judges up until that point. Viewers didn’t even get to see him sing his final Vegas Week song before he got the boot. The whole things seemed very odd to The Ashley.
The Ashley was curious to see whatever happened to Johnny, now that it’s been about six months since his time on ‘Idol.’ It turns out Johnny has had some big career achievements lately!
