Ryan Seacrest High-Fives Blind Contestant

"American Idol" contestant Scott Macintrye, 23, may be blind, but that didn't stop Ryan Seacrest from trying to given him a high five.

Macintyre plays the piano, went to college at 14 and ballroom dances, and he even sung his way to a golden ticket to Hollywood. After Scott emerged from his audition and hugged his family, Ryan held up his right hand for a high-five.

Seacrest ended up reaching down and taking Scott's hand after his gesture hung midair.
