Devin Velez tackles the 'Dreamgirls' anthem 'Listen' on 'American Idol'.

This week on American Idol, semi-finalist Devin Velez belted out “Listen,” the show-stopping number made famous by Beyoncé in the 2006 movie version of Dreamgirls. The 18-year-old contender put his own spin on the song, switching to singing the lyrics in Spanish halfway through the tune. Commending his bold bilingual choice, the judges unanimously praised the performance and allowed him to move forward in the competition. With so many former contestants of this show headed over to Broadway, does this mean that Devin Velez might be the next Idol in this town? Check out his Dreamgirls rendition below and be sure to tune in to American Idol!
