As we’ve seen many times on American Idol, just because a person is sent packing from Hollywood Week doesn’t mean their dreams of stardom are squashed. Many of them return home, hone their skills, and come back even stronger.
Such is the case for Hawaii native Bryant Tadeo. He may have been cut in Hollywood last year but, but Bryant has made it all the way to the Top 40 and the Las Vegas rounds in Season 12. Maybe next time around, he'll make it even farther!
Bryant says his favorite Idol moment was when Kelly Clarkson won, his favorite alum is Jennifer Hudson, and what makes him unique is that he’d never been to the Mainland before getting his golden ticket in Season 11.
Although we’ve predicted that this will be the season of the females (or at least a female winner), it’s sad that Bryant didn't make the Top 20 after hearing him sing a rendition before the season started of “Give Me the Beat Boys” that would make Bill Withers proud.
