Popular, early opinion so far states that a woman will win American Idol.

But we can think of two singers that hope to prove that consensus wrong: Tyler Grady and John Park.

The former stood out during his initial audition in Boston because he performed with casts on both wrists, the result of a fall from a tree. He also impressed with his retro look and rendition of Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On."

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.
