Fargo South grad advances to Hollywood after impressing judges on 'Idol'Nick Fink, a 2009 Fargo South graduate, is going to Hollywood.
The 19-year-old Fargo native who now lives in Scottsdale, Ariz., impressed the “American Idol” judges tonight earning a “yes” vote from each of them after singing the Maroon 5 song “Unforgettable.”
Afterward, the slender and smiley young man was beaming with pride when “Idol” judge Steven Tyler said “You’re beautiful looking, man.”
Fink auditioned with his, then, girlfriend Jacqueline Dunford, and they were pegged as an “Idol” couple, shown kissing in front of a pond and holding hands while skipping on a grassy field.
Jennifer Lopez, another of the “Idol” judges, called them pair her “favorite couple on ‘Idol’ in ten years.”
