FIFTH PLACE WAS WON BY A SINGING DAD

A singer from California, Michael Ketterer, 41, took fifth place, but his performance so impressed the music mogul Simon Cowell, that he promised that they would "continue this relationship."

Ketterer, a native of Knoxville, Tennessee, and a father of six, performed in the final with Garth Brooks, singing "Courage to Love," a song the country legend composed especially for him.
