Jacee Badeaux may have been axed from 'American Idol' in the early audition rounds, but the angelic-voiced singer, who the judges said they expect to see in front of them again in future seasons, is living the dream, instead of dreaming the life. The teen performed on stage at the New Orleans Arena with Rascal Flatts and received a deafening ovation from his hometown crowd.

Badeaux's performance of 'Bless the Broken Road' is so flawless and spot on, you'd think he was the unofficial fourth member of Rascal Flatts. Badeaux led the crowd, who sang along in unison with him. It's hard to believe that this kid is all of 15.

Performing with the Flatts was truly a dream come true for this future superstar. In his 'Idol' audition video, Badeaux even compared his own higher pitched voice to the Flatts' own Gary LeVox and revealed they are his favorite performers of all time.
