Damien Lawson, stage name Damien, was a contestant who competed on Season 7 of as a member of Team Adam. His blind audition of the Boyz II Men song "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday" yielded a four-chair turn.
Competing with a strong heart, Damien wasted no time making a climb for the top, and found himself as an easy fan favorite entering the live shows. During the Top 8 Quarterfinals, while three contestants found themselves eliminated from the competition, Damien had managed to secure an easy entry into the Top 5, with help from an iTunes multiplier, with his performance of Adele's "Someone Like You"
During the Top 5, he and Taylor John Williams were the only ones to not secure an iTunes multiplier, and thus were both eliminated with the least amount of votes. However, each of the Top 12 that had been eliminated had the chance to compete for a spot in the finale via the Wild Card round. Performing Bruno Mars' "Grenade", Damien received the most votes and returned to the competition.
