While in Hollywood, the Idol hopefuls sang 'Jingle Bell Rock.' Can you spot Ethan in the crowd?  I'll give you a hint, he's right in the middle of the front row!

Ethan currently lives in New Hartford, but is originally from Garrattsville, New York. He graduated in 2013 from Mohawk Valley Community College and has since been touring and supporting his debut album, released in 2012.

Ethan sang the National Anthem at our 2012 Wild West FrogFest and Rodeo.

Last April, Ethan won the local version of the X-Factor and was in the studio to talk about it. We sure hope he'll be back to talk about his Idol experience and all that time he spent with Idol judge Keith Urban. I hope he takes lots of pictures to share.

Learn more about Ethan and hear his album at EthanHarrisMusic.com. Tune in to Fox January 15th for the premiere of American Idol. Watch highlights from the new season on Idol's YouTube channel. Man, Keith looks so goooood!
