Eben Franckewitz is the latest 15-year-old to grace the “American Idol” seal for auditions. He’s cute as a bug in a rug and he brought with him his equally cute and super supportive parents, which is wonderful. Everyone should be so lucky as to have parents like that.

For his audition, he tore up some “Ain’t No Sunshine” and our only quibble was that he didn’t get to sing longer. We wanted him to get to the “And I know, I know, I know … leave the young thing alone.” But anyway, it was wonderful.

Jennifer said of the audition, “Some people just have it, some people are just born to do it. I think that’s you” and Randy praised his “Natural, God-given gift that is pretty amazing and spot-on.”

Did you want to just scoop him up and take him home?
