‘American Idol’ is going out with a bang! In the first sneak peek for the final season of the singing competition, we’re introduced to a man who holds nothing back about his obsession with Kelly Clarkson during his audition! Watch the clip here.
Kelly Clarkson, 33, got her big break on American Idol, and now a 22-year-old fan, Justin Sullivan, 22, is looking to follow in her footsteps on the show’s final season — maybe a little too much. In the first sneak peek of the singing competition, Justin reveals to the Idol judges that he calls himself “Mr. Clarkson” and is not shy about his love for the singer at all. Find out what happens next!
Justin walks into the audition room and shares that he is obsessed with season one champ, Kelly. “I’ve been obsessed for a while that I even have her name on all my T-shirts. I am really dedicated,” Justin tells judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr, who are fascinated by his confession. Next thing you know, Justin actually pulls out a T-shirt with “Mr. Clarkson” printed on it!
Unfortunately for Justin, he’s never met his idol, but Harry makes him feel like she’s right there watching his audition by attempting to move a nearby poster of the “Breakaway” singer. For a second, Justin is hopeful that Kelly is actually in the house, but then Harry attempts to bring over the poster of Kelly… but finds it’s plugged into the wall. After some struggle, the poster of Kelly is moved over by Justin, which will hopefully give him some good luck! Sadly, we don’t get to hear Justin’s voice before the trailer ends and we’re left with the question of if he’ll make it to Hollywood.
American Idol season 15 is set to premiere in Jan. 2016.
