We didn't have high hopes for Kevin Harris when we didn't even really get to hear him at all during the American Idol 2013 auditions or Hollywood Week rounds. However, if there’s anything we know from watching this show for 12 seasons, however, it’s that some people can come on strong out of nowhere.

The soft-spoken Montgomery, Alabama, native said during his Road to Hollywood video that his whole family sings. And, much like many others this season, this isn’t his first time being spun in the Idol Machine. It’s his second go-round, and he was hoping this one will stick.

Kevin says he thinks his strong suit in the competition would be his versatility, as he has sung backup for country, pop, R & B, hip-hop, and Motown...impressive!

As he said, “It’s my time. I’ve worked hard.” His hard work earned him a place in the Top 40.

Sadly, it turned out all that lack of attention to Harris early on in the season had a reason. His solo performance in the Vegas rounds was nothing special and the judges sent him packing.
