HOLLYWOOD, CA. — The American Idol judges were quite impressed with Wyatt Pike’s duet performance last night. He shared the stage with singer-songwriter, Ben Rector. The two of them sang “Brand New,” a Tate McRae song. It was rare to see Wyatt perform without his guitar, however, that didn’t change the judges’ impressions of Wyatt.
