You know it's Rush Day (2/1/12) when, for the first time in its 11 year run, American Idol provides us with a Rush sighting.
David Weed of Mountain Home, Idaho attempted to sing Rush's seminal classic Tom Sawyer for the judges. Unfortunately, the results were not favorable.
Randy Jackson asked David "In your mind, is that what Geddy Lee from the band sounds like to you?" to which David replied "Well I hope I don't sound exactly like him. Randy countered, "Well he actually sounds really good..."
Shockingly, David left without the golden ticket. You can check out the clip below or directly at YouTube via this LINK.
