Despite failing to impress Luke Bryan in the auditions, 21-year-old Fritz Hager managed to land the golden ticket to Hollywood on season 20 of “American Idol.” Determined to prove to the judges that they made the right decision by passing it, Fritz pulled out all the stops for his performance during Hollywood Week.
The Texas security guard decided to perform on ‘Unsteady’ and gave a very emotional performance. At the end of his performance, the judges – Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke, couldn’t deny that he had a lot of talent, and they were curious to see what else he had to offer. So they moved it to the next round – the Hollywood Duet round. Although we’ll have to wait and watch to see how Fritz fares in the next round, in the meantime, you can check out the reactions to Fritz’s stunning performance here.

While Fritz continues to be uncertain of himself and his talent, fans have noticed his potential and are already supporting him. One fan commented on the show’s YouTube clip of his performance with, “What the hell is he saying he’s not one of the best out there. His voice is literally perfect for the radios .” Another fan shared, “And with that, Fritz is in my top 5! He’s a beast! I literally cried. Fritz thought he had something to prove, and I think he showed that “He was so special! He was the best of the night in my opinion. Those falsetto jumps gave me complete chills. He’s a star!” “Lol, the last notes had me saying ‘Mm’ out loud. He got me, he got me. His audition was a little disappointing I guess, but I loved what he got said about ‘proving to himself’ that he belonged in this contest. I was cheering him on at the time, and he totally delivered. So satisfying,” one fan echoed.
