Watch Charlie Askew Sing “Rocket Man” in American Idol 2013 Las Vegas Round 2

After wowing the judges with his awkward and adorable performances during Hollywood Week, Charlie Askew’s ready to sing for his life in Las Vegas!

Taking the stage in the Sudden Death elimination round, the 17-year-old dons a ruffled blouse and velvet pants for his rendition of Elton John’s “Rocket Man.” Keith and Randy are both shocked and confused by his outlandish and weird performance, but Nicki can’t get enough. “Your awkwardness excites me. It’s fresh, it’s crazy!” At the end of the day, it was more of Vegas stage show than a strong vocal, but will the judges send him on?

Will Charlie make it through? Read our spoilers here!
