Now this one nearly brought a tear to my eye. Doug Kiker, a garbage man from Mobile, Alabama has never performed in front of an audience in his life, but wowed Lionel Ritchie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan with his cover of Rascal Flatts’ “Bless the Broken Road.”

The only singing experience he has is when he is on the back of his garbage truck. He doesn’t understand the lingo used by singers, doesn’t understand vocal range or keys, but what he does know, is how to sing!

Not only did Doug take the judges and the internet by surprise with his talent, I don’t think he could be a better person. The reason he is there is to show his 2-year-old daughter that you can do anything you want if you go for it.

I know who I am rooting for all season long.
