Alejandro Aranda (age 24) of Pomona, California sang “Under Pressure” by British rock band Queen during the Queen Night on American Idol 2019 (Season 17).

“Under Pressure” is a 1981 song originally recorded by Queen and British singer David Bowie. The song topped the UK Singles Chart, becoming Queen’s second number-one hit in their home country after 1975’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”. It peaked at No. 29 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in 1982.

Like his previous performances, Alejandro Aranda put a twist to the song and made it his own. American Idol 2019 judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan were all praises for Alejandro Aranda’s cover like before.

Alejandro Aranda was voted to the Top 6 of American Idol 2019. He will be performing with the other Top 6 contenders which include Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon, Laci Kaye Booth, Laine Hardy, Madison VanDenburg, and Wade Cota on Sunday, May 5, 2019 at 8:00 PM ET on ABC.

Judges Comments:

Luke Bryan

I love it. I just love how you see the painting in a whole different way. You see it your way and you stick to that. And that is so hard to do with what the show is making you do that’s outside of your world. Yet you come out here and you paint it your way every night. And you know, vocally, we heard you be better vocally before but it never matters because you’re doing your own thing and that’s so cool for me. I mean I just love everything you do.

Lionel Richie

There is something you can’t get away from and you are the lucky recipient of it, you are an artist. And on top of that you are also an amazing stylist. It’s only gonna come out your way, no matter what you do. Three blind mice is still gonna sound like Alejandro, I’m telling you.

So what I’m just saying to you is don’t ever lose that because that’s the core of who you are.

Katy Perry

Hey homie. Yeah that is the secret sauce. Your authenticity is your secret sauce. It could also be your worst enemy. I think that you’re figuring that out in really fast fast ways right now.

And I think this is just an opportunity that the universe is saying, “Hey, Alejandro, you think you can make it in this world? I’m gonna give you a crash course in what it feels like to be successful. Now, can you handle it?” And I think you’re handling it very well.

After Alejandro Aranda’s unique cover of Queen’s “Under Pressure”, he was voted to the Top 6 of American Idol 2019.
