'Idol' viewers are livid over comeback contestant making it into the top seven
After the last episode of , fans were protesting this season's "Comeback" twist, in which contestants from last season performed for the final spot in this season's top 10. After a two-week hiatus, it was revealed Sunday night that Season 18's runner up Arthur Gunn was voted in as "the comeback kid," which already made things feel a little awkward among this season's contestants, but also enraged viewers when, at the end of the night, he was voted into the top seven.
While Arthur moved on in the competition, viewers said goodbye to Deshawn Goncalves, Cassandra Coleman and former frontrunner Alyssa Wray, whose first audition was compared to watching "Beyoncé get born" by judge Luke Bryan.
Fans were so upset that Alyssa was sent home, because they felt like Arthur had his chance last year. One person even tweeted that "This is the single WORST idea #americanidol has ever had!" -@megdoe
Fortunately, the night wasn't an entire bust. Prior to the ending, everyone was having a great time during Disney night, which was filled with amazing performances from contestants like Grace Kinstler, who sang Frozen 2's "Into the Unknown" and Willie Spence, who sang The Lion King's "Circle of Life."
