American Idol returned on Monday (March 23) for the second consecutive two-hour special as contestants continued to compete in Hollywood Week to try to secure a spot in the Top 40. The aspiring singers battled it out during solo rounds in hopes to advance to the next round.
Jovin Webb was one of the many contestants who took the stage hoping for a shot at the Top 40. His stunning performance of Chris Stapleton’s hit “Parachute” caught the attention of the judges and got him through to the next round.
“What do y’all think of @JovinWebb’s rendition of @ChrisStapleton’s Parachute,” Luke Bryan asked his Twitter followers during the show. “Man, I love that song.”
“Oh yes @jovinwebb really pushing through. @chrisstapleton you gotta hear this. #AmericanIdol,” Lionel Richie praised.
Katy Perry also complimented Webb’s performance on Twitter during the show saying, “Doesn’t sound like you’ll need a parachute to get you through to the next round @jovinwebb.”
American Idol returns on Sunday (March 29) at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
