Judges On Willie Spence’s Death
The three judges, Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel Ritchie, remember the amazing young man’s audition for American Idol Season 19 and how they advanced him to the next round. The singer had tweeted that the boy would never forget this day and that he was happy to have chosen Rihanna’s song “Diamonds” for the audition.
Before the American Idol audition, Willie struggled with weight and underwent training to address the issue.
Willie eventually advanced to the American Idol finals when he performed “Georgia on My Mind” by Ray Charles.

Another American Idol contestant, Grace Kinstler, placed third.
