Sam Woolf was one of the featured singers on American Idol's Season 13 premiere Wednesday night.

We also caught a glimpse of the restaurant where he used to perform.

The owners there say Sam left one day saying he was going on vacation. He never returned.

They didn't realize the "vacation" was American Idol until the show called asking for permission to film there.
