His 'American Idol' Audition Stunned The Judges. When You See It, You Will Be, Too

A voice you'll want to hear over and over again.

During "American Idol" auditions in New York, the judges and the audience got the best kind of surprise in the form of a New York City busker who introduced himself as "Hollywood" Anderson.

This amazing video shows the beautiful entirety of Anderson's audition, in which he performed an original song entitled "My Best Friend."

Anderson described the song as being written for a college classmate whom he "fell madly for." The soulful rawness of his delivery coupled with his lyrical sincerity hit the judges – and all of us – in a big way.

We think you'll see what we mean when you hear it. Take a look.
