Most Memorable 'American Idol' Auditions

Sherman Pore

Another “Idol” hopeful who remained undaunted by the show’s 28-year-old age limit, this silver-haired crooner petitioned successfully to earn the right to audition for Season 6 in honor of his 20-year love Melissa, who had passed away two days prior from ovarian cancer. His tragic story earned him an instant fan base, and despite the fact that he didn’t make it past the “Idol” auditions (he WAS 36 years over the age limit), he was booked on shows like “Larry King Live,” inducted as a celebrity ambassador for the City Of Hope, and signed to the Z Entertainment label, which released an album of standards in honor of Pore’s late love. -Jeff Royer
