Inspirational. That seems to be the route American Idol is taking since Luke, Katy, and Lionel took over the judges table. All the sob stories lead the way, ABC is really trying to get away from what made American Idol so great in the first place, the BAD AUDITIONS. I guess we've grown as a society since then...for better or for worse. Regardless of how you feel about the show as a whole, this story is pretty damn special. Ethan is a special gift to this world, I can only imagine how much living with cystic fibrosis since before the age of two SUCKS. But there's no quit in this kid. That's what's so endearing about him. He doesn't let something he had no control over run his life. He's out here singing his heart out. Unbelievable that he has now sang with his country superstar idol TWICE, once in front of 50,000 people and this time to the entire world. This duet will live forever on the internet and no matter what happens from this point forward, Ethan will always be able to look back on that. That's special. Can't wait to see what else this show has in store.
Also, Since when can you bring guitars into the auditions with you?! @Traceahamilton
