It only took 5 seconds for the judges after Francisco Martin from San Francisco entered the audition room of American Idol Season 2020 to discern that he is timid and very nervous. In his introduction video, the 18-year-old admitted that he always had a struggle with self-confidence.
Lionel Ritchie and Luke Bryan approached him to help him calm down before he sings. And when he opened his mouth, the judges were smitten. His take on “Alaska” by Maggie Rogers blew the judges away.
Katy Perry had a word of advice to Francisco: “I know you’re nervous but you have to figure it out because it’s about to come.”
Bryan has one word written on his notes: WINNER.
