Long Islander Christian Guardino to make his 'American Idol' debut Sunday

A Patchogue resident is back in the national spotlight.
Christian Guardino made it to the semifinals of "America's Got Talent" in 2017 - and won the hearts of the judges and America - sharing his story of being visually impaired and sharing his voice with the world.
This Sunday he makes his "American Idol" debut.
The almost 22-year-old is competing on the historic 20th season of the show - in front of judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan.
