Just when you thought 'American Idol' auditions couldn't get any weirder, enter 24-year-old Drew Beaumier in a red 'Transformers' outfit.

Beaumier built the Ford 'Transformers' suit himself using a child-size toy car and chose, appropriately, to sing 'Born to Be Wild' by Steppenwolf, which starts, "Get your motor runnin'!"

The judges ultimately rejected Beaumier because he forgot the lyrics mid-song, though they were impressed by his homemade suit.

Sorry, buddy. Guess it just wasn't your Optimus time to shine. (Boom! Nailed it!)
