WATCH: Israel McFarland Curses A LOT During His ‘American Idol’ Audition, Earning A “NO” From Idol Judges

Audio engineer Israel McFarland’s audition on American Idol was comical but it didn’t impress the Idol judges. 

“My parents like to name us all names from the Bible,” McFarland admitted after Katy Perry said his name is an “interesting” name.

McFarland went on to explain that his family has been very strict on him growing up. He even revealed that his mom will still make comments if she hears a curse word in his songs, but he says “cursing is one of the few things in life that I enjoy. So I just can’t stop!”

McFarland, a native of Nashville, Tennessee, then auditioned with an original song called “The Cost” during Austin, Texas auditions.

“This song is actually about, I want to chase my goals, but that just sort of unbearably brings me away from my close friends and I don’t know man, like life is so f**king short,” McFarland explained of the tune.

Wearing a t-shirt and jeans, the 21-year-old then sat down at the show’s white piano to perform the tune. 

“I’m going to try and not f**k it up, you know what I’m saying,” the contestant said as he took a seat at the piano.

While the judges’ commentary was not shown, McFarland did not earn a golden ticket to Hollywood as he earned a “no” from the Idol judges.

American Idol returns on Monday, March 28 for Hollywood Week at 8/7c on ABC.
