Next up is former boy band member Chris Trousdale (26) from Big Rapids, MI. He says that he was in a boy band called Dream Steet. However, they broke up and he is currently working at a sushi restaurant. He says that he wants to make it big again and not be turned down anymore. He comes out and sings “Glad You Came”.

Adam says that he is a dancer with a nice voice and tells him to concentrate more on the voice.
