Arthur Gunn returns to American Idol, receives praises for incredible spin on Goo Goo Dolls “Iris”

Arthur Gunn returns to American Idol, receives praises for incredible spin on Goo Goo Dolls “Iris”


Arthur Gunn has once again got praises in American Idol 2021 by super star judges — Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie in the 19th edition of American Idol.

He gave a comeback performance on April 19 and received praises from the judges, singing Goo Goo Dolls “Iris”. After the performance, Bryan shared that Gunn's strengths is his ability to grab audience attention without trying too hard to "overhype" himself. "You can simply walk out -- and it's understated, but it's so wonderfully overstated, too. I love hearing your voice on this stage again, love seeing you up there," he said.

Then, Perry told, "Arthur, I love that you just go your own way. You're kind of like an anarchist. You're like, 'I'm here, I'm doing my own thing,' you buck the system."

“You happened to strike the right chords in me. I don't know whether it's just the old-school sound or the new-school, old-school mix, but what you have is the artist at hand," Lionel Richie elaborated. "...I say to people every day, 'You can sing a song, but can you be a stylist?' You are definitely a stylist.”

Arthur Gunn was runner-up in the 18th edition of American Idol. American Idol has given a chance to ten contestants of last season with the intention of giving them a second chance, citing the fact that some contestants did not get enough chances to perform on the big stage due to the coronavirus.

The American Idol has decided to give a second chance to a singer who has good potential but has not signed a record label in the meantime.

Arthur Gunn had the same buzz as last year's winner Just Sam, but he didn't get any record labels. The 10 contestants from last season had taken part in the competition on April 19 for the selection for this season of American Idol. Arthur Gunn is among those participating in the competition. And, from this competition, one will be in the top 10 of the new edition of American Idol.

Those who get the highest number of votes in a week-long voting will be able to compete with the best 10 of the new season.
