Bernard Williams II is twenty-six years old and is from Pleasant Grove,
Alabama. Before his American Idol 6 audition, Bernard said that he was
hoping to be another one in the long line of Birmingham Idols. Bernard
also added that he had heard that Simon Cowell said the next Idol would
not come from Birmingham, and he was wanting to prove him wrong.
For his Birmingham audition, Bernard Williams II sang “Rock With You.” Simon Cowell said “Very good, absolutely 100% yes.” Paula Abdul said “Wow, I was going to say you have a great tone, but you’re completely off key, and I’m shocked. No for me.”
At first Randy Jackson seemed undecided, but then Bernard called him “dog.” Randy said “Ah, see that, you said the words of endearment, dog. Alright, ok, yes, I’ll give you another shot. You’re through to Hollywood.”
