Tristen Gressett: Things To Know About The 17-Year-Old ‘American Idol‘ Contestant

  • 17 years old performer Tristen Gressett (born in 2005) from Alabama is all over the headlines after his banger performance at season 20 auditions of American Idol.
  • He landed on the stage with ants in the pants energy and, after a brief introduction, started singing “Piano Man” by Billy Joel.
  • With harmonica in the mouth and guitar in his hand, Tristen performed pretty well, but judges felt he was over-doing everything.
  • Luke Bryan commented after his performance saying, “You’re amazingly talented. You’re just overusing every talent you have. Every talent you have. You’re throwing it in.”
  • The same response he received from the other two judges. To check if he dialed down his energy Katy told him to sing one more song, so he began singing “Colors”  by the Black Pumas.
  • He looked very nervous this time, opposite what he was like during the first song, but he performed well.
  • Bryan commented, “We might have to sit on top of you, man. You got it squeezing out the size. But if you can take a little coaching, let me tell you what you have. You got some real substance, man.”
  • After some more comments and tips, the guy from Alabama earned his golden ticket to Hollywood.

A big fan of Lionel Richie

  • When Tristen used too much energy in his song, Luke said, “Underneath this powder cake is a real artist. Well, we’re trying to take you from a gimmick to an artist. You have to take yourself seriously.”
  • The young fan took suggestions from the favorite music star, and he also promised to do his best in his next performance.
