Another memorable moment of the season was when he performed in a duet together with Melissa Etheridge, performing one of her most popular tracks, "I'm the Only One."

The night Thompson was awarded the prize and the public was shown his track, "One Day Tonight," which climbed to the top spot on the iTunes All Genres and Country charts straight away.

In the days before American Idol, the rising star was employed in construction singing with his coworkers while they constructed homes - as well as taking care of his infant son, Walker.
