Garet Johnson, A Cowboy On American Idol 5

January 24, 2006 12:03 AM by Joe Blackmon

Garet_johnsonGaret 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.”

    The ‘C’ Factor- Garet Johnson May Win on Cuteness Alone

    Can you hear it? A low throbbing sound echoing across the spacious skies and fruited plains? Followed by a sound not dissimilar to a nation of women sighing and giggling in unison? There’s a new heartthrob in America, and his friends don’t call him “Ac…

    Garet’s so cute. All my friends are in love with him. I’ve never seen an Idol contestant get so many fans so early in the season. I hope he can handle the next stage…

    I think American Idol is about to do something great by putting a “Veteran” on the map!! I also think millions are going to “gobble” Garet up.
    Simon knows he’s got a great deal of raw talent worth investing in. Good for you Simon and Randy! I just don’t understand what happened with Paula? That “NO” she blurted will send Garet 2 steps forward and Paula 1 step back.You go boy!!

    Garet has already become a star to millions of Americans–I was thrilled to go to American Idol’s website and see that I was not the only person positively affected by this young man’s charisma. There are pages and pages of posts from people whose hearts Garet has stolen with his genuine warmth, infectious spirit, natural humor, loads of charm and great vocal talent–which will only improve with training! No matter what happens on “American Idol”, Garet has fans all across the USA. And, while I’m sure many of them will be teenaged girls with crushes on this new “Idol”–I can assure you that his appeal will be far-reaching–to all ages, all races, men and women alike. This country desperately needs an “Idol” who epitomizes the American dream–and this boy is it. The State of Wyoming can be proud! Thanks, Tracy Goodwin

    Garet came here wanting to win. He didn’t just want to go on TV and make a fool of himself, he wanted to try his best–and he did. I really hope he goes far. He’s never been out in public–or anywhere. He’s real and he has talent.

    I really hope Garet wins. He is just the kind of “Idol” America needs. If he gets to the stage where America can vote, I will vote for him for sure! It will be my first time ever voting. And, I agree with the previous poster.. if he gets kicked off, I will stop watching American Idol!

    Not only is Garet adorable, he has a great deal of talent. His nerves are really the only thing working against him right now. He’s never really been around crowds…I guess that’s the disadvantage to growing up in a town of only four residents!

    I would LOVE to see Garrett go far this season. It touched my heart to see him at the beach during the tour of Hollywood the contestants went on. He is such a sweetie and already has a huge fanbase, which will give him an advantage.

    omg he is such a cutie…i can’t believe they cut him.. he could have won with all the fans he probably had..i mean i fell in love with him the fisrt time he sang and talked. Those freaking judges need to get a heart and just because of 1 bad stage performance….doesnt mean its the end for a guy. And that beach scence with him put a tear to my eyes..gahhh

    I LOVE GARET! He is so cute and has an amazing voice… I am REALLY PISSED OFF that he got eliminated in Hollywood!!! REALLY PISSED OFF! I hope he makes an album anyway, because I will buy it the day it is released. I was really hoping he would make the top 12 at least… and now I’m going to cry. Seriously.

    Garet, I sent you a letter, please write back! I really do think you are an amazing gut, so please… just wish and dream hard with ALL your might. Practice singing infront of people; that will help. And no one is pressuring you. Do what is right in your heart.

    Hey to the little Turkey singer cowboy “G”: You grabbed the hearts of millions of fans, buddy. Your innocence was refreshing. Wish more people had your qualities. Am proud of you and your efforts. And your two cowboy singing team members – you guys were awesome, being supportive and able to see the big picture with young “G”‘s best interests and heart in mind, as you three sang.

    Rock-on fellows – I gotta go check on the new elves, now!

    I loved Garet soo much! I still love Garet! I want to meet him and tell him what a great singer he really is. If I had the chance i would totally marry him. I say that because I love his personality, his kindness to others, his looks, and him. I hope he comes back next year and shows Paula what a great singer he is and throws it her in face!! heh!

    Garet, I think the judges were jealous of your talent and style. “You make that so called professional Paula” an amature. I think you are the Idol that should have been. Hang in there bud.
