Garet Johnson is an 18 year old male from Veteran, Wyoming. Veteran is a town of just four people. Garet sang “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” by Elton John during his American Idol 5 audition.
Garet says his everyday life is about riding horse, chasing cows, and doctoring the sick ones. Garet’s singing partner is a turkey (literally).
Simon Cowell asked Garet if he had enough money to pay for vocal lessons, and Garet responded “probably not.” When Simon asked if someone would help him, Garet responded “I don’t know. I don’t have much.” Garet also revealed “This is the first time I’ve ever been out in public really.”
Paula Abdul said no to Garet advancing to Hollywood, but Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson said yes. Randy Jackson asked Garet if he had ever been on a plane, and Garet responded “No, I’ve always wanted to be on a plane. It’s kind of a silly dream, but I’ve always wanted to be on a plane.”
