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.
