Benson Boone walked into the American Idol audition room, sat at the piano, and won the golden ticket with his acoustic rendition of Aidan Martin’s “Punchline.”
Benson seemed determined to win the season after receiving high praise from Katy Perry, who said he could be the season’s winner if he believed he could. However, he was nowhere to be found during the Hollywood rounds, which was surprising.
Spoiler alert: As we dug deeper, we discovered that Benson later reappeared in the showstopper round, made it all the way to the Top 24, and then reportedly dropped out of the competition.
In 2020, his musical journey began when his friends got him involved in a school organization called “Battle of the Bands.” “My passion for singing has grown since then,” he said. So, in comparison to other AGT contestants, Benson had been singing for a shorter period of time and had less experience.
Judge Luke Bryan also informed Benson.
“You’re not arrogant; you’re humble. When it comes to this world, you’re still in diapers, a toddler.”
Benson, as we all know, wasn’t always a singer. He used to be a sports fanatic, participating in rock climbing, cliff jumping, football, and track. He even played for Monroe Youth Football – NSJFL – Monroe Senior Black in Snohomish, WA in 2020. However, after discovering music, Benson revealed that he discovered a “different side” of himself that he was unaware of. He stated that music allowed him to “relax.”
Although this was a newfound passion for Benson, he admitted that winning American Idol was a “very big dream” of his.
