Reed Grimm Covers Family Matters Theme Song on American Idol

by at . Comments

Family matters to Reed Grimm. The 26-year old has been singing on stage with his parents and siblings since the age of two.

So it was only appropriate that the American Idol hopeful auditioned last night via the Family Matters theme song, harmonizing and scatting his way through this unique track, much to the amusement of all three judges.

Steve Tyler referred to Grimm as "genius." Randy Jackson said he was "enthralled" by the performance. Watch it for yourself now and come up with your own description:

Grimm, of course, was not the only standout in Pittsburgh. We also were huge fans of Hallie Day and Eben Franckewitz.
