Evan Ruggiero has the looks that would get the girls voting for him on American Idol Season 12 that is for sure. He has been dancing for almost 17 years now and started out dancing when he was 5 years old! So, why is he auditioning for American Idol and not So You Think You Can Dance? Did he go to the wrong location? Nope, he started doing musicals in college and fell in love and discovered his love for singing.
