We weren’t certain how the nerve damage to Micah Johnson’s tonsils would leave his voice, but he impressed us (and the American Idol 2013 judges) with his bright and clear version of Zac Brown Band’s “Chicken Fried.”
But will it be enough to get him into the Top 40 for Season 12? He does make it through the a cappella round of Hollywood Week. However, our American Idol spoilers list doesn’t include Micah’s name, but anything can happen during Hollywood Week!
