American Idol 2012: Watch out for Ethan Jones at St Louis auditions

Ethan Jones is set to make his TV debut on tonight’s American Idol episode.

The handsome singer showed up to try out for the hit Fox show when the team hit St Louis last year and our insiders have said that not only did he do exceptionally well at the initial stage, but he got far enough to be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement, so we’re thinking Hollywood at least!

Ethan had formerly been performing as part of country group the Well Hungarians, however insiders say he has taken time away from the band, since trying out for Idol. During his time with the group – who originate from the St. Louis/Southern Illinois area – Jones performed in concert with many music greats including Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Gretchen Wilson, Keith Urban and Blake Shelton.

Ethan has recording experience as well as live performance, as the Well Hungarians previously released two albums and have had four nationally charting singles. They were also named New Music Weekly 2006 Band of the Year.

He has previously revealed that his biggest musical influences are artists such as James Taylor, Elton John, Billy Joel, John Denver, and Stevie Wonder

Watch a video of Ethan performing Superstitious below and tell us, do you think he’s good enough for the live shows? Could he be the next Clay Aiken? Leave your comments below and catch up with Ethan on Twitter here.
