CAPE CORAL, Fla.- Southwest Florida native Lazaro Arbos is on his way to being the next American Idol.
He won the hearts of America making it through to the next round by landing in the top six.
While he is stealing the hearts of America and Southwest Florida, his closest friends and family are pleasantly surprised how far he's going.
"I was stunned because they've been so hard on him I didn't expect it but it was awesome. Keep going, keep going, don't back off, keep picking the songs you love and you're going to sound great," said his pastor Dave Gipson.
Some viewers agree the show's producer, Jimmy, has been tough on him. Even Nicole posting on Facebook, "He needs to step it up now."
Robert posted,"Jimmy is not America."
Emmelina says, "Lazaro is a winner no matter what!!! Lose or win ~ he's still a winner!!!"
William adding, regardless of what happens, "America will not let these judges or Jimmy sway us from this talent that is Lazero!"
Cindy raved, "I think Lazaro did better than ever before. America voted! Go Lazaro!"
Lazaro takes the stage again next week.
