Ryan Nisbett: One of a Kind on American Idol

by at . Comments

Many singers rocked in Detroit last night, as American Idol aired one of the more impressive early audition episodes in recent memory.

But a certain hipster in glasses truly stood out in our eyes, partly because Ryan Nisbett used to weigh over 300 pounds (amazing when you see him now) and mostly because of what Jennifer Lopez said after he sang "Angel."

“No guy has ever come in and sounded like that,” the judge gushed.

Harry Connick Jr. added that Nisbett possesses an “incredibly unique voice” and just hopes people will "give that a chance in the context of "American Idol."

You can give it a chance now. Watch the talented young man's audition:
