Things seem a little more promising with Jesus Valenzuela, who calls himself a family man and said he auditioned because of his kids. He's 29.
He pulls out some "Nice and Slow" by Usher, and it's OK, but something you'd get out of the typical boy band wannabe. A little nasaly. Simon cuts him off quickly, saying he'll never win AI.
Never miss a local story.
Jesus tries to woo the judges by saying, "My kids are out there waiting for me."
Despite Simon's no, the judges want to see the kids.
So he brings his two sons in for a total sap factor, and Randy seems more willing to bring son Gabriel to Hollywood over Jesus. Still, Jesus sings again and the judges seem sold.
Paula's a yes, Kara says yes -- "I am not going to make these kids sad."
Randy joins the club, and Jesus is off to Hollywood!
Simon tries to get in on the happy feelings by asking one of Jesus' sons for a hug.
Aww. That was actually really cute.
