Known as ‘The Singing Barber’ across social media and in real life, Noah Peters has gone viral once again following his audition on American Idol.

Iconic singing competition American Idol premiered Season 22 on February 18, 2024, and the show has already had more than a handful of viral moments.

One of those moments is from Noah Peters, who has amassed a following on TikTok of over one million fans thanks to his videos where he sings while cutting people’s hair.

Peters shared his audition video on February 25, 2024, in a clip on his channel, and fans quickly took to the comments to congratulate him.

The Singing Barber goes viral after American Idol audition

In the audition, Noah Peters sings the Rascal Flatts hit ‘I Won’t Let Go’ and very easily earns a standing ovation from judge Lionel Richie. However, Katy Perry asks if Peters feels a little “naked,” and has the show bring in a barber setup.

“Do you think you could sing better if you could give a haircut right now?” asked Perry.

Noah needed some hair to cut as well, so they brought Season 22 semi-finalist Colin Stough to sit in the chair and get a quick trim. The two went back and forth singing Chris Stapleton’s ‘Broken Halos,’ and it ended with Noah Peters getting his golden ticket to Hollywood.

The video quickly went viral, and Noah’s fans flooded the comments to show their support for the singer.

“Rooting sooooo hard for you from right over in Kentucky!! I’ve told you once and I’ll tell you again, I could literally listen to you sing allllll day,” one user replied.

Another said: “I’ve been a long time follower. I am so proud and wish you all the best of luck!!”

“Rooting for you! You have an amazing voice,” a third viewer commented.
