American Idol aired its final round of auditions on Sunday (March 15) and one contestant that had fans talking was a shirtless man named Nash who called himself the “Mullet Man.”

Rather than showcase his talent in a traditional way, “Mullet Man” crashed the judges’ s’more making session around a campfire, storming past security to get in front of the judges.

As Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan and Katy Perry roast giant marshmallows, Nash hops over a rock wall, taking everyone by surprise. “What up, dude?” he says to Bryan.

Once the judges realize they aren’t in danger, they ask Nash to sing for them. Giving them a choice between “Should’ve Been a Cowboy” and “Ole Red,” Nash grants the judges’ request and goes on to sing the Toby Keith classic.

As he sings, Bryan and the other judges chime in for a sing-along.

Unfortunately for Nash, the judges don’t think he has what it takes to make it to Hollywood.

Bryan offers him a few singing tips before sending him on his way.

Watch it all go down in the clip above.

American Idol returns with Hollywood Week on Monday at 8/7c.
