Eben Franckewitz: The Next Justin Bieber?!?

by at . Comments

When it comes to shaggy hair, supportive parents, a strong voice and a humble attitude, be warned Justin Bieber: you now have competition.

On American Idol's foray into Pittsburgh last night, viewers met Eben Franckewitz, a 15-year old from Milford, Ohio. We were first introduced to him via home video, as the show drove home just how close Eben is to his parents.

He then only needed a few seconds in front of the judges to earn a Golden Ticket for his  rendition of "Ain't No Sunshine," with all agreeing the kid was adorable and Randy Jackson telling him: "You definitely have a God-given gift that is pretty amazing and spot-on."

Also serving notice in the Steel City? Hallie Day. The 24-yar old waitress means singing business.

K. Nevermind. I sure hope that Sydney Girl that posted that he does not have a girlfriend anymore is right. I honestly want him to make it hut even if he doesn't I think he will become famous somehow. I love you Eben!!!!!!!!!!

Ok. Just have to say that Eben is so cute. I think he should start a band and he could be the lead singer. I know some people think he is a jerk but he is not. I mean, how could you think that. He is hot. You know, it stinks that he has a girlfriend because I would try to find out where he lives, knock on his door, and ask him to be my boyfriend. Love ya Eben!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Paula Abdul [after Brooke White was eliminated on season seven]

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.
