  9. Musicluv RO

    Why did they bring his sister? I didn’t watch this episode. Was she the one that pushed him to audition for AI? He’s really good! Congrats Hunter.

  10. Mr.Awesomestar7

    He would do wonders on a Kodaline song

  11. komolafe Hafsat

  22. Mrs

    Very bland average voice and look like she couldn't be arsed

  23. Christina Friesen

    I can NOT believe Luke said NO 😳

  24. Shiro Snow

    I’ve met this guy, and he loves God so much, and I’m proud of him.

  25. ragtop63

    Why did they bring his sister in?

  26. Duda Silveira

  27. ws 2019

    Plot twist, its not only his daughter its his wife too🤔

  28. 808 ROCKETS4LIFE

    Average but annoying voice 😂

  29. Jane O'Leary

    Lousy song choice. JMO

  30. SGD .68

    He’s the real deal and with good song choices could win this 👏

  31. Qussai

    He rather sound annoying

  32. Lululemonade

    He closed his eyes the whole time yet Katy said nothing about it. She continually harassed Arthur Gunn about it last season. 🤨

  33. ws 2019

    Put the lion back in.

  34. Jaime Attenborough

    Where are more audition vids ! Im loving them.

  35. 현도

    Bruh, she got that hourglass figure.

  36. TracyAli83

    I say top 3

  37. Nikki Scott

    I thought Katy Perry was going to say he's the "core" of Apple Valley. ;-)

  38. YetiVision Gaming

    His guitar was so loud. Took away from his voice a lot

  39. Shay 25

    Nothing hotter than a guy with a raspy rock voice..

  40. James Gurung

    Now THIS Is An ARTIST 👏

  41. Brit

    All I see is a spoiled brat

  42. Deelola 52


  43. Kao Vang

    But I want a magic handkerchief too

  44. Regina Moore

    He made them an offer they couldn't refuse!! Congrats🎶🎶🥰🥰

  45. Deelola 52

    Amazing, beautiful and adorable!

  46. Michele Robertson


  47. Sadia Fahad

    Too much show off

  48. Samuel Burson

    Like a lot of other people I think he is good but not great. I have heard 4 singers that are better than him hands down. As usual song choice will be key. Good luck to him and all others performing this year.

  49. Deelola 52

    Really like him hope he does well. He just needs to keep his eye on the prize because when you’ve been down that road full of despair sometimes it comes back to challenge you even more. He’s got a great family especially his mom. Good luck

  50. lilian mathew

    If you see how Katy look at the dad when playing a guitar am sure she has already made a decision but she was trying to make the poor girl feel better.

  51. ws 2019

    Its not good enough

  52. The Watchman


  53. AyeTeeTV

    Acting like she’s not nervous but she’s nervous asf. She needs coaching but there’s something in there.

  54. kamalei 1111

    Every time I pick up my phone, I find myself back here 😍

  55. Linda Gibson


  56. Saint Mria Nkosi

    😹 😹 I've had enough of this guy

  57. Joy Esther Placencia

    He is really good.

  58. Rikki The Hedgehog

    Willie, first of all let me say that I grew up with music in my home. My mother and her sister sung in the church choir and had a group where they did programs and things of that nature. We listened to gospel, R& B blues,you name it and I have heard it. But I have never heard anything as pure and as great.

  59. James Gurung

    My jaw literally dropped when she started singing 🤩 just wow

  60. Nancy Graham

    With tears streaming down my face and dripping from my chin... sweet girl you are truly an inspiration. Bless you, your father, and your siblings.

  61. Shizzle MyNizzle

    He’s gonna be a cute old man 😂

  62. Mehgan Harris

    he’s giving very much marjorie vibes i wouldn’t say top 10 bc of how many times we’ve heard this type of voice but i say that to not discredit him he’s amazing but ehhh idk

  63. Conflic7

    That rasp note around 0:57 has to be the note Luke was talking about, right!???

  64. Jeffrey Lay

    I want to hear him sing Bob Dylan's or John Denver's songs.

  65. Team Dach

  74. R Thévenet

    Future star ???????? Are you kidding me ?
