HARRISONVILLE, Mo. -- The first time American Idol contestant Joe Dahmen ever sang in front of an audience, it was for his family who live in Harrisonville, Mo.

Dahmen has made it this far through American Idol: Season 11. He grew up in Harrisonville but is now a student and a football player at the Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph.  Dahmen says he's unique because he's an athlete who loves to sing.

He says his favorite idol contestant was Carrie Underwood because of her beautiful voice and because she's one of the most beautiful women he's ever seen.

Dahmen's family hopes he will perform Thursday night on American Idol. Good luck, Joe!
