Luke Bryan Says 'Thank You Jesus' After 17-Year-Old Alex Miller's Audition

17-year-old Alex Miller made a big impression with the judges after his original country song on American Idol.

As the video opens, we see Alex playing guitar for a field of cattle. That’s when we learned that this high school student is a fan of small town living and working on his grandfather’s farm. But music is his biggest passion of all.

“Music means everything to me. Whenever I was young, my parents divorced and it was a way for me to cope with that and release a lot of that energy.”

For over ten years, Alex has been performing all over his neck of the woods and, now, he’s ready to take those dreams to the big stage of American Idol.

And from the minute he opened his mouth, the judges were struck by this personable young man. Alex played an original song titled ‘I’m Over You, So Get Over Me’ inspired by an ex-girlfriend.

“Well time and time again I tried
And just when I get you off my mind
You come crawling on your knees, falling, crying and begging ‘please’
But I’m over you, so get over me”

The entire time Alex was singing, the judges had the biggest smiles on their faces. And as the song ended, Luke Bryan exclaimed ‘Thank you, Jesus!’

Lionel Richie was also impressed. “I am thrilled. Your personality is just infectious.”

Alex easily earned three ‘yes’ votes from the judges but they wanted to personally deliver the good news to his family waiting back home. So, the entire entourage walked out of the audition room and stood in front of a large screen that was video chatting Alex’s family.

That’s when he flashed his golden ticket to Hollywood to the cheers of his loved ones. Alex certainly made a name for himself with this initial audition and I’m so excited to see him in Hollywood Week.
