The Hardy Party

Hardy has had a reputation for his Elvis-inspired performances all season long. From his raspy rocker vocals to his smooth stage presence, he has fans gushing all across the nation.

On last night’s episode, Hardy took the stage to perform “Hey Jude” by the Beatles. He dedicated the ballad to his older brother, Kyle for the Hero Tributes theme. The pair are extremely close as they share a love for fishing, hunting, and singing together.

Just a couple days before the show, Hardy shared a video of him and his big brother strumming their guitars and singing their own rendition of another Beatles classic, “Don’t Let Me Down.”

Following his lively performance, the judges were ecstatic to give Hardy all the compliments. It was clear that no matter the outcome, the judges were fully supportive of Hardy and his future career endeavors.

Later in the night, Hardy went on to make it into the Top 3 with flying colors.
