We know that there are some major competitors on American Idol 18, but Arthur Gunn has been a favorite of ours from the beginning. He’s a fantastic singer, and beyond that a true artist. He’s someone who has showcased interesting arrangements and stellar musicianship.
Yet, none of this is ultimately a guarantee for the top 20. Arthur still had to find a way tonight to impress the judges in Hawaii. So what did he choose to do this time around? We’ll have more on that within…

Before Arthur even hit the stage, our first thought was why in the world the show was saving him for so long. What did they get out of that? Well, for starters, they kept you watching for the entirety of the show! His song choice was Bob Marley’s “Is This Love,” one of our favorite songs of all time. His rasp was there, the musicality was there, and we honestly didn’t want this to end. Perfect. Everything we wanted to see from him and then some.
Now that we know that he moves forward, we do think that Arthur is going to have a huge audience voting for him — of course, the mechanism for that very much remains to be seen. It’s rather unclear at the moment how the “live shows” are going to be handled in this present era, but there’s a good chance that they will both look and feel different than what we’ve seen on the show to date.
Arthur’s a serious contender — if he doesn’t make it far, something is seriously wrong in the world.
