You won’t believe what happened when ‘American Idol’ contestant Ethan Stough took the stage with his strong and raspy country voice! Performing Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man” during the audition round, Stough quickly became a formidable contender on the show.

But it was during the top 12 performances when Stough truly showed his versatility, taking on the well-known pop house song “Dancing On My Own” and turning it into an incredible country rendition. With just a spotlight, a stool, and a guitar, Stough’s powerful voice filled the venue, earning him a standing ovation from the judges and wild applause from the crowd.

Luke Bryan couldn’t contain his amazement, pounding the table and jumping up and down in celebration, while Katy Perry was left in awe, mouthing “wow” several times as she continued to applaud. Lionel Richie was also impressed, clearly taken by Stough’s incredible performance.

In an interview with People Magazine, Perry and Bryan were candid in their reactions, with Perry gushing about Stough being the “Brad Pitt of country music” and Bryan praising his ability to rise to the challenge and deliver a great performance.

Fans on YouTube were equally impressed, with many calling it the best country version of any song ever performed in ‘Idol’ history. It’s clear that Stough’s strong and unique voice has captured the hearts of both the judges and the audience, making him a true standout in the competition
