Tonight’s American Idol season 19 episode had a lot of business to take care of, and that included the return of a favorite.
If you were to ask us before this past episode who was going to be coming back from season 18, it would be without a doubt Arthur Gunn. How could it not be? We’re talking here about the runner-up from last season and someone who has an enormous following pretty much all over the world. We would honestly be shocked if he wasn’t the person to come back!

Ultimately, there is no reason to be surprised here at all. Arthur is back in the competition! This happened after his unique take on “Iris” last week.
So what did Arthur take on this time around? “Remember Me” from the movie Coco, which Arthur admitted he hadn’t seen before this week. Yet, there was something anthemic and fantastic about him performing his own version of the track alongside the band. This felt like something that you’d hear at a legitimate concert and not just an American Idol performance.
After his performance, Katy Perry called this one of the best performances that Arthur has done and spoiler alert, she’s correct. We’re so stoked to see him in the competition now since he’s got a legitimately great chance of going far. Will he be a really controversial winner, just because of the twist? Sure, but it’s hard to do anything other than root hard for him.
What do you want to see when it comes to American Idol and Arthur moving forward?
