Find out which current contestant on The Voice also tried to become the next American Idol.

It's Colton Swon!

We now know him as one half of the popular duo The Swon Brothers, but before auditioning for The Voice, Colton wanted to become the next American Idol.

During his audition, which he did without his brother Zach, Colton told the AI judges that his bro was cautiously supportive of his solo venture.

After Colton sang "Boondocks" by Little Big Town, all three judges gave him the thumbs up to move on to the next round.

Colton then showed his personality by asking the judges to say bad things as he exited the room so he could play a trick on his parents waiting outside and pretend he hadn't made it.

While Colton obviously didn't win the whole competition, he and Zach are doing well on The Voice and recently became the first duo to survive the "Battle Rounds"!
