For her American Idol audition, Mylon Shamble sang a rendition of “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King in front of Judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. The judges aren’t sure about her song choice at first but once she starts singing, they’re thrilled and send her and her awesome voice to Hollywood.
The 25-year-old has lived locally since fifth grade, except for attending Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton after graduating from Lakewood Ranch High School. She moved back after college and works at Modern Gents, a barbershop with a craft beer and wine bar in University Park.

American Idol will make its highly anticipated return to television as superstar judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie set out on a journey across the nation to discover a new crop of inspiring talent with a touch of Disney magic, as it premieres its first season at its new home on America’s network, The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand. Emmy® Award-winning host and producer Ryan Seacrest, who represents the heart and soul of the show, returns as host of the beloved series to walk with these Idol hopefuls through this adventure toward stardom.
When American Idol debuted in the U.S., the series revolutionized television, pioneering the reality-competition genre and holding an unmatched record for being the highest-rated series for nearly a decade. The series also ushered in second-screen audience participation, being the first to introduce text-based and mobile voting. The Idol format has taken on original versions in 53 countries around the world, and American Idol itself has played to a worldwide audience of over 460 million across 53 countries. To date, American Idol has earned 57 Emmy nominations and eight wins.
