Janelle Arthur Progresses Another Round on ‘American Idol’
Country singer Janelle Arthur has moved on another round in the twelfth season of the hit reality singing competition 'American Idol.' The 22-year-old entertainer earned America's favor with a subtle, understated performance of 'I Will' by the Beatles, learning her fate on the results show on Thursday night (March 21).
Arthur has competed on the show twice before, in 2011 and 2012. But she has never made it to the Top 10 prior to this year, where she has been a standout with her poise and versatility. Her performance Wednesday night demonstrated a sense of restraint and taste that is in sharp contrast to the hyperbolic vocal gymnastics that tend to dominate 'Idol.'
Arthur will participate in the 'American Idol' tour this summer, and will survive to sing again next week.
