From the American Idol stage, to FrogFest, Ethan Harris will open this year's event June 14th at Herkimer County Fairgrounds. He'll also sing the National Anthem with the color guard, to get things off on the right note. Ethan stopped by the studio this morning to talk FrogFest and his time on Idol.

Ethan is excited to be back after singing the National Anthem, for the first time in public, at FrogFest in 2012. He's also excited to see our headliners, Thompson Square and James Wesley, who 'is one of my favorites. He's just so nice and I can't wait to catch up with him and hear him rock it on stage. Last year I bought him a drink because he was standing in line to meet everyone for so long.'

Unfortunately ladies, it looks like Ethan is taken by former Idol hopeful Jessica Meuse. The two are Facebook dating, whatever that means. Ethan was very vague when asked if they were REALLY dating.
