Audition[edit | edit source]

Jonah auditioned in Honolulu. He beatboxed and sang "Thank You" by Boyz II Men in front of the judges. Although Randy voted "no", Paula and Simon voted "yes", sending him to the next round.

Hollywood Round[edit | edit source]

Jonah was shown on the third day of Hollywood Week in a group with Sonny Kapu and Clifford Iokia. He survived the cut that followed shortly thereafter and was shown performing first on the final solo performance on the fourth day of Hollywood Week. He did enough to make the judges' Top 32.

Top 32[edit | edit source]

Jonah appeared in Group 3. He sang "I Wish" by Carl Thomas. He did not receive enough votes to make the Top 2 in his group, eliminating him from the competition.
