His Minneapolis audition for this season of American Idol will air that day, but this isn't his first rodeo. Back when he was 16, Fischbach and his parents, Brent and Elizabeth, drove to Denver – what he remembers as a 19-hour trek – to try his luck at stardom.

He made it all the way to a private audition with the judges. At age 16, the judges liked his singer-songwriter vibe, but, he says, they thought his voice needed to mature a little bit. The only glimpse viewers saw of the Morrison High School grad last time was his face for 2 seconds while he was driving in a car.
