American Idol: Jack Blocker

For American Idol Season 22 contestant Jack Blocker, it’s not an exaggeration to say that being on this competition ride is nothing short of a rollercoaster. It looks like Blocker is still experiencing whiplash since he came down from his incredible run. So, what else did he have to say recently?

American Idol: Jack Blocker Made It To The End In Season 22

Jack Blocker was one of the finalists in the most recent season of American Idol. He ended up taking third place, behind Will Moseley and eventual Season 22 winner, Abi Carter. Blocker had an incredible run, even if he didn’t ultimately walk away with the title.

American Idol fans took to the Dallas, Texas native and graphic designer from the moment he auditioned this past season. He came out swinging, performing an original song for the judges in his audition. It’s safe to say he had everyone in the palm of his hand from that very first moment, especially Luke Bryan.

He made enough of an impression that judge Lionel Richie changed his vote following crew backlash at initially sending Jack packing. Fortunately, they corrected the mistake, and Blocker had a third place finish to show for it.
