Tyler Grady: Wrists Shattered, Dreams Alive

by at . Comments

He's probably the only American Idol in history to be remembered more for his physical state than his singing voice.

That's what happens when you audition with two broken wrists.

Indeed, Tyler Grady fell out a tree soon before he tried out for the show in Boston. The result? A memorable rendition of Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On." He received approval for Hollywood from all four judges.

Rumored to be one of this season's 24 semifinalists, Grady is a 19-year old from Nazareth, Pennsylvania.

He's the lead singer for a rock band called Wailing Waters. It's actually won a trio of battle of the bands competitions over the year: the Mayfair Festival Band Battle, Croc Rock Band Battlefest and Nazareth Day Battle of the Bands.

Watch Grady's Idol audition below and grade his chances to become the next champion.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
