American Idol is in it's final season. Right now, we're in the audition stage of the show. We've already seen some great performances, but what makes the show for me, are the stories. Yes, whenever we see that produced backstory, we know that they probably made it to Hollywood. But that doesn't make the story any less powerful. One story that always makes me tear up are ones that involve our troops. Check out this powerful moment between a daughter and her military mom.

Excuse us while we mop our tears off the floor.
