When was the last time you got a chance to slow dance with one of Hollywood's most beautiful stars? Probably never.

One Mississippi boy got a chance of a lifetime when he got to do just that. 

20-year-old Michael Simeon of Lumberton, MS got a chance to audition for American Idol. But something even more special happened right after his performance.

Before it was his turn to audition, the Ole Miss student told the cameras that he had a special request for the judges after his performance. 

Simeon was confident and excited as he entered the room to sing before Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick, Jr. 

He grew up working on a farm in Lumberton and he told the judges he was auditioning for American Idol so he won't have to do that anymore. 

Simeon wowed the judges with his performance of 'Stay with Me' by Sam Smith. But the best part happened afterwards. 

"I have a question for you," Simeon asked Jennifer Lopez. "Would you dance with me?"

"Dance with you right now?" Jennifer asked.

Obviously she did. 

But Keith and Harry didn't want to be left out.

While Simeon and Jennifer slow danced, Keith played guitar and Harry was on the piano as they all sang 'Stay with Me'.

"It was very lovely," Jennifer said of the dance after Simeon left.

What a lucky guy. Not only did he get a ticket to Hollywood, but he also got to slow dance with the gorgeous celebrity.

Good luck to Michael Simeon as he advances to the next round!
