Dillon James (age 26) from California brings it home with Eric Clapton‘s “Change The World” during the Top 5 performances on the Finale of American Idol 2020 (Season 18).

Katy Perry said that was one of Dillon’s best performances all season long. She said it was effortless and he deserves to be in the Top 5.

Luke Bryan said Dillon’s performance felt real natural – “it felt like the right song, the right key, the right delivery.” He congratulated Dillon for being Top 5 and said, “You are exactly where you need to be in life right now.”

Lionel Richie said Dillon’s vocal performance was “absolutely stellar.”

Dillon James competed against the other Top 5 contenders, namely Arthur Gunn, Francisco Martin, Just Sam and Jonny West during the Finale. Just Sam was voted as the winner of American Idol 2020, while Arthur Gunn ended the competition as runner-up.

Change the World” was recorded by the English singer Eric Clapton for the soundtrack of the 1996 film Phenomenon. Clapton’s release topped Billboard magazine’s Adult Contemporary and Adult Top 40 charts in the United States. The single won eight awards, including three Grammy Awards at the 39th annual ceremony in 1997.

American Idol Season 18 premiered at 8PM, February 16, 2020 on ABC television and airs Sundays at 8/7c. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, filming of American Idol was temporarily suspended and contestants were sent home.
