Iam’s story is a heart touching one which has been loved by the audience from the very beginning. During his audition, he spoke about his father’s passing and how music was a way for him to bond. As she sang, bringing judges Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan to tears, Katy Perry praised Im’s voice as “fantastic”.

But it is not just the story of IAM that has hooked the audience. Megan Daniels, a 20-year-old singer from Georgia, also has an inspiring story to tell. During her audition, she sang Lauren Deagle’s “You Say” and was surprised when Deagle herself joined in. Danielle previously competed on The Voice, but was eliminated during the semi-finals of season 18.

Colin Stuff, an 18-year-old from Mississippi, rounded out the top three. Stuff was signed up for the show by his mother and impressed the judges with his rendition of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man”. His mother also joined him in the audition room, telling the judges that their house was filled with guitars.

Two singers, Vi Annie and Zachariah Smith, were eliminated on Sunday night, leaving just Iam, Megan and Colin to compete for the title of American Idol. The winner will be revealed during the Grand Finale, which airs May 21 at 6PM MDT.

This season of American Idol has been full of surprises, emotional moments, and incredible talent. But it is Im Tongi that has captured the hearts of audiences across the globe. Katy Perry has already declared her this season’s champion, looks like Iam already won, no matter what happens during the finale.

As viewers tune in to see who will be crowned the next American Idol, they will undoubtedly be impressed by the incredible talent on display. But for many it will be Iam’s story that will stick with them long after the competition is over. His emotional audition dedicated to his late father is a reminder of music’s power to heal and bring people together.
