The latest contestant to pull off such a feat was none other than sixty-four year old Sherman Pore. Even though Sherman was 36 years over the American Idol age limit of 28, he showed up at the auditions with a petition to be an American Idol contestant.
While American Idol has let contestants over the age limit audition in the past, most of those auditions have been for comic relief. However, Sherman Pore said the reason he was auditioning was he had worked on a letter and petition to become an American Idol contestant with his lady love of twenty years while she was in the hospital because of cancer. Sherman choked up as he said, “I believe that it helped her to keep a positive attitude, and I think it smoothed her passing and made it a little softer.᾿
Before his Los Angeles audition, Sherman also revealed to the judges that his lady love had passed away two days before the auditions. Sherman sang “You Belong To Me᾿ and actually proved to be one of the better singers from the Los Angeles auditions. After his audition, Sherman said “I won. I am a winner.᾿
American Idol viewers also think Sherman Pore is a winner, and they want to see more of him. Posters on the American Idol message board have started a petition of their own asking producers to bring Sherman back to perform on the American Idol 6 finale. The petition is quickly gaining steam as one of the most popular posts on the message board.
