David Leathers Jr. Impresses Judges on American Idol Premiere (VIDEO)



Has “American Idol” already found its Astro?

In the 11th season’s premiere on Thursday, the show’s very first contestant seemed eerily similar to the former “X Factor” contestant.

Seventeen-year-old David Leathers Jr. brought some of the bravado and cockiness that made Astro one of the most controversial “X Factor” contestants.

Leathers even revealed he has a way with the ladies, admitting his nickname is Mr. Steal Yo Girl – which quickly became a trending topic on Twitter.

But the judges were impressed by Leathers’ performance – which, unlike Astro’s signature rapping, entailed straight crooning of Century 21′s “Remember The Rain” – and gave him a ticket to Hollywood.
