American Idol's 12th season top 20 have been chosen and are moving on. It was difficult for the four judges - Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, and Randy Jackson - the last two nights making the final decision in choosing the best male and female singers.
Last night it was the males turn to shine and Lazaro Arbos although a little shaky his performance delivered without stuttering and overcoming his nerves. The 21 year old Cuban native who lives in Naples, Fla. has a speech impediment since the age of six, but it hasn't prevented his success and determination to continue with his American Idol destiny.
Lazaro sang a rendition of Keith Urban’s song "Tonight I Want to Cry." Minaj complimented his performance, "What I love about you is that you always give us Lazaro. A lot of people came and tried to switch up stuff that we love and it’s like, why take that type of risk right now?"
Mariah Carey added, "There is a purity and sincerity that comes with the emotion of your struggle and what you go through and how music brings you through that. That’s one of the things I really love about you."
Lazaro since his Chicago audition has been a true inspiration to many including those with a speech impediment. His impediment is forgotten and disappears as soon as he starts singing which amazed all the judges at his first audition.
