From guarding property to stealing hearts, Fritz Hager has been something of a surprise package on American Idol.
On another elimination night Sunday (April 24), the 22-year-old singer made new fans (and set hearts aflutter) with a performance of James Bay’s “Let It Go”.
The Tyler, TX native is a former security guard. With a string of well received covers of songs by Billie Eilish, Dean Lewis and more this season, it’s a good bet he can leave that career behind.
Bay’s impassioned rendition of Bay’s tearjerker was enough to keep him safe, though Dan Marshall wasn’t so lucky. Marshall, the 24-year-old former college football player and country hopeful, was eliminated from ABC’s TV talent quest.
