Hunter Hayes was a quick replacement for Demi Lovato at VH1’s Phillly 4th of July Jam on Thursday. Unfortunately the X Factor judge had a case of strep throat. The 21-year-old country singer was enthusiastic though – singing I Want Crazy, Somebody’s Heartbreak and ended the show with a cover of Every Little Thing She Does is Magic.
He tweeted: “Happy 4th of July and Independence Day weekend everybody! Celebrating this beautiful country by MAKIN MUSIC! #withtheroots #nobigdeal”
He’s a heartthrob so some. Earlier this year Seventeen asked him what his type of girl is.
Hayes replied, “I don’t have a girlfriend. I don’t know if I have a type, but I really like girls who are driven. I really care about music, so I like it when a girl really cares about something too.
“Whatever it is they are into, I’ll be their biggest fan. Confidence is a big thing for me too. I struggled with feeling confident for a long time, but I think it’s important to be strong and not compromise for anyone or a relationship… I’m drawn to that.”
