The 18-year-old Kahuku native was one of the top 20 singers who performed in Sunday's American Idol episode, before returning to the stage Monday to find out he was voted into the top 12.
He performed Lionel Richie's 'Stuck on You' in the first live show of the season Monday, and even gave his grandfather a shout out at the end of his song.
This Sunday, Tongi and the other contestants will perform songs from the "Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame", and votes for the top 10 will be revealed live.
Voting opens for the top 7 on Monday.
