American Idol: never high 5 a blind man
Here's a beautifully cringeworthy disability moment courtesy of this year's American Idol, the popstar-finding reality show on US television.
To set the scene, blind pianist Scott Macintyre has just sung his heart out and gets the thumbs up from judges Simon Cowell and co. He emerges victorious through the door to be greeted by host Ryan Seacrest, who decides the best way to celebrate with him is to throw a high five in his direction. The only problem is that, being blind, Scott has no idea what's coming at him ...
Despite this embarrassing moment for all concerned, Scott has since progressed to the final stages of the competition. You can catch him perform as one of the final 32 tonight at 9.00pm on ITV2.
