Will The Next American Idol Be From Bentonville?

American Idol 2016 hopeful Thomas Stringfellow certainly has a name that sounds like it should belong to a bard, right? Well, we think his audition for the American Idol judges on Thursday night certainly proved he’s earned the right to such a musical name!

Thomas Stringfellow, a 17 year old student from Bentonville, AR, performed “Give Me Love Like Her” for the celebrity panel and we think we loved it as much as they did. Keith Urban said he likes Thomas’ vibe and how he made the song his own.

JenniferLopez really seems to dig Thomas and thinks he had a lot going on. Three fat yes votes for Thomas and he’s off to Hollywood!
