Kiko Martin is the musician who recently appeared on American Idol, alongside his brother and former contestant Francisco Martin.
He shocked viewers – and the judges – who instantly recognised Francisco, when he crashed the final week of season 19’s American Idol auditions.
Showing that he isn’t the only talented singer in his family, Francisco and Kiko took to the stage to impress the singing contest’s judges.
So, who is Kiko Martin on American Idol? We managed to find him on Instagram and find out what else he does, when he’s not singing.
Who is Kiko Martin?
Kiko is a 25-year-old registered nurse from Las Vegas, Nevada.
The contestant grew up in a music-oriented family, and was inspired by his brother to audition for American Idol.
He performed Japanese Denim by Daniel Caesar, and brought on his “guitarist”, who was revealed as his brother Francisco Martin.
Together, Kiko and Francisco performed a second audition song, 10 Years by Scarypoolparty (Alejandro Aranda).
Lionel Richie was ready to take a chance on Kiko, but Katy Perry and Luke Bryan thought his voice needed a little more time and work.
