Chris Medina auditions with Breakeven on American Idol 10
Chris is from Oak Forest, Il, age 26 and is a Barista/Caretaker.
I love this song! I love the Script!
Chris Medina’s fiancee Juliana Ramos got into an accident before they got married. She has brain damage and Chris is now her caretaker.
Steven Tyler told her: “That’s why he sings so good coz he sings to you.” That was very touching.
For the record, I question why Chris and Juliana’s family would allow her to be exploited in this way. Seeing this beautiful girl “transform” after her traumatic brain injury in front of millions of viewers was so irresponsible and cruel.
However, I understand — after 10 seasons — that American Idol appeals to the most common denominator, that’s why things like this and other “tragic” stories like dead wives, parents, grandparents in dementia, etc. are included in the show and even built up as the “grand finale” of a 2 hour episode.
I was touched by this story, but at the same time, I really felt bad for Juliana.
Vote for the Worst has already declared Chris Median the biggest douchebag this show has ever seen.
