Who is Douglas Mills Jr?

Douglas Mills Jr is one of the exceptionally talented singers from Kinder High School for the Performing Arts. 'American Idol' gave Douglas a surprise, as the 18-year-old artist received a silver American Idol ticket that allowed him to audition in front of some top producers of the reality show. However, the standout senior was initially unaware of getting such a huge opportunity. Samica Knight from ABC Season 13 showed up to his class in September and pranked him by asking him to take her on a tour of his educational institution and Mills was speechless when Samica surprised him with a silver ticket.
