Now that season 19 of American Idol is down to its top 10 finalists, Billboard wants to know: Who do you think has what it takes to come out on top?
Arthur Gunn, last season’s runner-up, won the “Comeback” competition and secured his spot back in the ABC series. “There has definitely been a lot of progress and a lot of learning along the way. I feel more professional and more motivated now,” he told Billboard. “I learned so much about myself and the music scene and how to work in this field. I feel fortunate and will be forever grateful for a lifetime.”
One of the top 10 finalists, Cassandra Coleman, named Gunn as one of her favorite Idol alums and recalled singing “Breakaway” by inaugural Idol winner Kelly Clarkson when she was 9 years old for her first-ever stage performance. “I forgot the lyrics. I only did half the song, but I didn’t run off the stage,” she told Billboard. “I just said, ‘That’s all I remember,’ and everyone stood up and clapped.”
