“Apple Valley boy, forklift boy, you are a rockstar,” judge Katy Perry told singer Chayce Beckham, who is one episode away from possibly being crowned the next “American Idol.”

Fans on Sunday voted the 24-year-old, raspy-voiced Beckham into the show’s Top 3, along with Grace Kinstler, 20, and Willie Spence, 21. The trio will battle vocally for the “Idol” title Sunday night, May 23, on ABC.

Meanwhile, fans cut singer Casey Bishop — a 16-year-old high school student from Estero, Florida — from the competition despite strong performances during Sunday’s episode. Judge Luke Bryan once predicted she would be the next “American Idol.”

’23’ a No. 1 hit for Beckham

During Sunday night’s show, Beckham performed three songs, including his self-penned, autobiographical single “23,” which he released Friday. A lyric video on the “American Idol” YouTube channel accompanied the song’s release.

The song highlights Beckhams’s past struggles with alcohol and includes an apologetic message to his mother.

Beckham strums his guitar as he delivers the chorus, “Now I’m 23, and there ain’t nobody who can drink like me. Soon I’ll be 24, and the Lord knows that I can’t drink no more.”
