Chris Medina, auditioning on American Idol.   Possibly the most heartbreaking audition ever- his girlfriend suffered a traumatic injury after an accident and it was a miracle when she woke up after.   They were about to be married, but then the accident happened.   He sings Break Even from The Script.   The best part is after he sings, the judges ask him to bring his girlfriend in- it's just so emotional to watch.   Jennifer is funny- she introduces herself 'Hi, I'm Jennifer Lopez' like everyone in the room wouldn't know exactly who she is.   Steven Tyler says '...that's why he sings so good, cuz he sings to you'.   Grab a box of tissues before you hit play:

From Huffington Post:

Chris Medina is working to make two 'American Idol' dreams come true.
The 26-year old barista from Illinois appeared on Wednesday's tryout episode of the national singing competition, and brought with him his girlfriend, Julia Ramos. She was there for a different kind of inspiration: two weeks before they were to marry, Ramos was in a car accident, leaving her with brain damage.
Now Ramos' caretaker, Medina tried out for the show, bringing Ramos along and introducing her to judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler. Did he make the cut? Watch below.
Some fans and pundits have expressed support for Medina, while others think that his motives and actions were exploitative.
