American Idol Wiki

Michael Sandecki was a contestant on Season 5 of American Idol.


Michael auditioned in Boston. He sang "In the Still of the Night" by The Five Satins. He received poor reviews from the judges, but he told him he was nervous and had to go pee. The judges told him to come back after using the restroom. After that, he sang "In the Still of the Night" again and Simon stopped him, saying that he got worse. He was eliminated at this stage of the competition.


  • Michael was invited back to sing "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" by Elton John during the Season 5 Finale. Partway through his performance, Clay Aiken surprised him and sang the song with him.
