On a Queen-themed week of American Idol on Sunday night, gay pastor’s kid Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon sang live in front of the religious parents he said had shunned him for being gay. It was the first time his mother and father had attended the show. They watched as he vaulted into the final six contestants.

The contestants were mentored by Adam Lambert, and Harmon chose to sing “Who Wants to Live Forever”.

Said Katy Perry, herself a pastor’s kid, after the performance: “You really embodied the spirit of Freddie Mercury with that performance. It was like you froze time, it was so beautiful. It was so beautiful seeing you perform in front of your parents for the first time and it’s so wonderful to see your journey.”

Added Luke Bryan: “Jeremiah, you just continue to spoil us. It was such an emotional ride and you have a real knack for that. It was a complete journey that built and built and built, and then you just took it to the next level. I loved every second of it.”

Said Lionel Richie: “You take the band to the next level. That means you’re really doing something powerful. Your voice is something to be reckoned with.”

Asked by host Ryan Seacrest what he thought of the performance, Harmon’s father said, “That was very powerful. It’s another great performance. I’m not very objective, but I think he’s the best one here.”

Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon used his phenomenal range on the Elton John classic “We All Fall in Love Sometimes” and brought the house down.

“There are notes that Elton can’t do,” said Lionel Richie. “Then there are notes that — I can’t believe it — Freddie Mercury can’t do, and you went to a Z flat somewhere up there past Pluto and Mars. It was amazing. And your voice is amazing, and your career is going to be amazing.”

“I’m a mess,” said a tearful Katy Perry. “I’m just so proud. You’re such a gift. Your talent supersedes all.”

Added Luke Bryan: “The whole time I’m watching that I’m like I’m not worthy to be sitting here watching. I just see Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon on this big billboard.”
