Who is Tyler Fritz Hager III?

Tyler Fritz Hager, 22, is from Tyler, Texas, and has made it to the top 10 on season 20 of American Idol.

"My initial thoughts when I saw Wonderwall was, 'No way, this is one of the most popular songs ever written,'" Hager told Tyler Paper.

"… If I can come up with a really cool arrangement with it and really make it special, then I think it can be a really cool moment."

What did the judges say about his performance?

Hager said Wonderwall had become a meme, contributing to his decision to select it, but after his performance, Perry told him, "Wonderwall' can get a little party jammy but you flipped that on its head. That was not a meme, that was brilliance."

After his performance, Bryan said he chose the song as a curveball, and his inspiration to provide it as an option came from hearing Hager prepare with his band during a soundcheck in Las Vegas.
