Noah Thompson is among the artists who auditioned for American Idol Season 20.
American Idol returns to ABC on Sunday, Feb. 27. Here’s more about Noah.
* From Louisa, Kentucky, he’s one of the singers we’ll meet on the season premiere Sunday night.
* A snippet of his audition was leaked to YouTube. Noah apparently works in construction.
* A good friend announced he planned to sign Noah up for an Idol audition. Noah initially said he rejected the idea.
* He auditioned with a song called “Giving You Up” by Kameron Marlowe, a former Voice contestant. On Facebook, Noah has posted a photo of himself and Kameron, writing “I sing this dude’s songs all the time, love his music.”
* Noah’s musical style will remind viewers of last year’s winner, Chayce Beckham, in part because of his raspy vocals.
* And while Noah doesn’t appear to have released music yet, he has three originals on his YouTube channel — “Pedestal,” “Not a Phase” and “Heart Painted Black.” Check out the latter below.
* You’ll find lots more Noah Thompson music on his TikTok, where he has more than 3,000 followers and more than 12,000 likes.
