Ryan Nisbett from American Idol’s 2014 season might have been one of the show’s best auditions.

As seen in the clip below, the 24-year-old has a very unique and quirky appearance: a little mustache, a huge bouffant, and a very hipster-chic outfit.

Everything about him will capture your attention, but when you hear his transformation story, you might just have your heart melt.

When Ryan was about 21 years old, he weighed in at 320 pounds. He said he just loved food, but he decided one day that he needed to change his habits.

He went gluten and dairy free, then committed to a healthy lifestyle. It worked.

His before and after photos look like two strangers. Clearly, though, he’s still the same man, Just stronger, healthier, and seemingly happier.

The best part of it all? His voice will make you fall in love.

As he sings Sarah McLachlan’s “Angel” (you’ll recognize it as the heart-wrenching song paired with animal rescue commercials), he seems to put every judge into a trance.

And I think he put me into one, too! What about you? Let us know what you think about this incredible young man in the comments below!
