Park City native, Wyatt Pike has made it past another hurdle during his journey on American Idol.

Wyatt Pike made it through the first round of "Hollywood Week" Sunday night. 

During the round, contestants chose and performed songs categorized under six different genres of music. Pike's performance landed him in the indie-folk genre.

American Idol judge and famous musician Linoel Richie said the contestants in the indie genre “go out on a limb” to offer up something different.  

So far, Pike has provided his unique perspective in both of his appearances on the show. In his first audition he sang an original song, this time around he added a twist to a well-known song, "Stay" by Rihanna.

"There's a way to tell stories that are personal and make people feel something," Pike said during an interview on American Idol. "It’s a song they know, but I hope they've never heard a version like this before." 

After Pike’s audition, judge Luke Bryan complimented Pike’s smooth voice.

You can catch Pike continue his journey during the Duet episode on Monday night at 8/7c.
