#57 Andrew Garcia

Next on American Idol finalist countdown is another season 9 finalist, my number 57 American Idol finalist Andrew Garcia. He got 9th place in a double elimination with Katie Stevens. I think Jermaine Sellers should have made the top 12 instead of him. Garcia hails from Moreno Valley, California.

Garcia was born to Mexican parents. He also has an older brother. Garcia's fiancée, Christine Concepcion, is a popular YouTube singer. Garcia has a son, Caeland, with her. Garcia has a tattoo of his son's name on the right side of his neck, a tattoo of an "A" on his wrist, a rose on his front left arm, and a pair of Christine's lips in red on the left side of his neck.

Garcia auditioned for American Idol season 9 in Pasadena, California. He sung "Sunday Morning" by Maroon 5, which he would later perform on the American Idols LIVE! Tour 2010. He was praised by all three judges, especially Simon Cowell, who called him a "genuinely good singer," as well as guest judge Katy Perry. He later appeared in Hollywood, where he sang "Straight Up" by former American Idol judge Paula Abdul, and since has been particularly known for that performance.
