Justin Bieber next challenger?

The story of the night has to be the impressive talent shown by a chubby little kid named Jacee Badeaux.

The 15-year-old winner of FOX-44's "Baton Rouge Idol" competition last summer doesn't look like your typical pop star. But once he started singing Ottis Redding's "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay" last night, he had mouths dropping in the audition room – and also in my living room.

What a good voice! This kid has great range and solid vocal control. Best of all, the judges loved him. Jennifer Lopez called Jacee cute and adorable, and Steven Tyler hailed his singing as “a work of art” and “a thing of beauty.”
That might be a slight exaggeration, and I’m not so sure Justin Bieber has to watch his back just yet. But this little kid from Lafayette, La., could make this season interesting. He is certainly worth watching.
