American Idol premiered for the first time in February 2023, with season 21 on HULU and television (ABC Network). This time on 5th March 2023, it appeared on ABC Network with various singing competitors on the stage, nearly 55. Among them, one is Tanner Charles, who is gearing up for his raw talent while singing on the biggest stage ever along with his girlfriend.
Tanner is set to freshen up all his memories and appear as one of the crowds of competitors on the stage. As explained, Tanner had never had official training or professional appearance like this before. He is an aspiring singer and has recently quit college to pursue his passion for singing.
He hailed from Oklahoma and impressed two of the three judges when he sang the song (explaining that he was singing this for his only girlfriend, who has Golden Eyes). It was exciting and romantic; to see his girlfriend accompany him on the stage, standing by the side of the piano.
Tanner Charles is only 20 and belongs to Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. His full name is Tanner Charles Luetjen, and he has completed his primary education at Mingo Valley Christian School. He went to Tulsa Community College and had one year at the college. Next, he spent another year at Oral Roberts University before taking off and choosing the adventurous journey at American Idol.

Tanner says he never had any professional training earlier but has sung songs at the church in Broken Arrow. Indeed, he calls himself a “Battle Creek Church worship leader from Broken Arrow.”
The Story Behind The Appearance At The American Idol
Tanner Charles was once picked up by one of the casting producers on the show, who came across Tanner’s singing videos on Instagram. The producer asked him to give auditions for the show, and later, Tanner shared with the outlet that he had to skip the various rounds that would probably go through the virtual auditions. Instead, he had the singing and meetings for the executive producer over Zoom. Later, he received “Yes” from them and got to appear on the original stage in Nashville in front of actual celebrities. While Tanner did not reveal the names of the executive producer (‘s), it is interesting to watch him unfolding his skills on the stage of American Idol.
American Idol Audition
Before singing the song, Tanner Charles explained that he wrote the music (or song) for his girlfriend and wanted this platform to demonstrate his love. Then, his girlfriend, Delaney Blaylock, said, “The Question is, What am I doing here?” She stood by his side near the piano on the stage, and Charles got ready to play or sing. Suddenly, one of the judges, Perry, asked, “How long have you been dating?”
Delaney Blaylock said, “A little over a year.”
Perry asked, “Are You In?”
Blaylock (while looking at Charles), “Are You Talking Marriage Here?”
The sudden laughter exploded in the studio.
After the appearance on American Idol
ABC Network revealed the photos and the first look of the contestants on Twitter. The singer, Charles, can be seen smiling brightly, and in another image, a woman is standing on the side of the piano, supporting and facing him; she definitely might be his girlfriend. If you have missed the auditions, you can catch the same episode on HULU the next day.
