Jimmy Smith Makes It to Hollywood Singing Rascal Flatts’ ‘Bless the Broken Road’ on ‘American Idol’

Jimmy Smith

25-year-old aspiring singer Jimmy Smith used his good looks and vocal ability to win his way to a golden ticket, moving on to the next round in Hollywood on Wednesday night’s (Jan. 23) episode of ‘American Idol.’

The young musician should certainly have no marketing problems if he winds up with a record deal. With his tousled mane of curly blonde hair, he looks like he stepped out of his own video to audition for the show — a fact that was not lost on Nicki Minaj, who called him “Poppin.”

Smith sang an understated, soulful version of the Rascal Flatts hit ‘Bless the Broken Road,’ impressing the judges with his natural ability. “Your voice is a voice I was wanting to hear today,” Minaj pronounced.

“You have something very unique,” Mariah Carey said. “I can’t wait for the world to hear it.”

Smith easily got a unanimous “yes” from all four judges.
