When it comes to talent like Charlie Askew, awkward is awesome.
 
The shy singer blew the American Idol 2013 judges away with his unique take on Queen’s “Breakthrough” and Nat King Cole’s “Nature Boy” during the audition rounds.
 
This rich-voiced youngster made it into the Season 12 Top 40 with his raucous take on "Somebody That I Used to Know" in the Hollywood Week rounds.

In Vegas, even though his vocals weren't all that amazing, his performance entertained everyone. The judges decided they just had to see more of Charlie and he was put through to the Top 20. Will he survive the Top 10?
