The Script Touched By Fan's Emotional 'American Idol' Audition (Video)
Rockers The Script have been left touched by one fan's remarkable love story after he wowed TV viewers on "American Idol" on Wednesday night.
Wannabe Chris Medina, 27, performed the band's "Breakeven" at his audition for the show in Wisconsin, which was taped last year - and his back story broke hearts across America.
Medina has become a carer for his fiancee who was left severely brain damaged following a car crash just months before she was to wed the singer.
The hopeful brought his wheelchair-bound girlfriend, Juliana Ramos, to the audition and she got the chance to meet judges Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson.
Footage of his romantic proposal to Juliana and his emotional story featured on the show and his passionate performance has already made Medina a clear favourite to win the latest Idol competition outright.
And The Script could not be prouder that he picked their song for the audition.
Guitarist Mark Sheehan took to Twitter after watching the show and wrote a note to Medina: "Not only R U a major talent but U R 1 in a billion. Never waver,This world needs more MEN like U. Peace+Love."
