AMERICAN Idol’s Hunter Metts cried when he forgot his lyrics during tonight’s show as he tied Josh Groban’s Falling Slow.
Contestants shed tears after losing their words at the end of their performance.
Hunter tightened his heart with the ballad, and when he messed up the ending, he was overwhelmed with emotion.
The singer was consoled by the program judge Katy Perry: “Hunters, perfection is an illusion. It doesn’t matter.
“It shows you are human and vulnerable.”
Hunter has been a favorite contender for the title throughout season 19, as both the jury and his fans have supported him throughout the season.
The rising star previously auditioned for Idol, but was unable to advance because his sister worked for Disney, ABC’s parent company.
Her position was seen as a conflict of interest, but in an attempt to help her brother fulfill her dream, she resigned.
“This is the third time I try to come up with American Idol, ”He told the judges earlier this season.
“My first time, [my sister] currently working at Disney, and it is considered a conflict of interest. The year after I wanted to do it again, she resigned.
Prior to joining the program, Hunter worked as a Software Developer for Owen Technologies, LLC, in Nashville.
This season has shocked fans, after Paula Abdul returned as guest judge 11 years after leaving the show.
