Nick Rogers is a rapping, singing teen from Highlands Ranch, a senior at Mountain Vista High School.

According to Denver Post's The Know, Rogers has been singing "in one form or another since he was a toddler". That's why he decided to audition for American Idol in 2017-- and after getting a 'no' from the judges, working on his craft and returning to audition for this season's show.

Rogers auditioned for the producers at the Colorado Convention Center, then was flown to L.A. to meet the stars: namely Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie. Tune in to the audition episodes which will air from March 3rd to March 18th, and we'll see if our hometown hero makes it through.

Good luck, Nick!
