Francisco Martin (age 19) from San Francisco, California sang “Falling Like The Stars” by James Arthur during the Top 10 Homeward Bound round on American Idol 2020 (Season 18). Note that the Top 10 was modified to a Top Eleven as the judges used their save for an additional singer, Makayla Phillips.
American Idol judges Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie, and Katy Perry were moved by Francisco’s heartfelt rendition.
Katy Perry was crying and said it’s a mixture of hormones and believability. She said she felt the song and there was real believability in Francisco’s performance. Luke Bryan thinks Francisco is a diamond in the rough and that he knows how to get all the emotion out of a song. Before giving his comment, Lionel Richie made a shoutout for Francisco’s mother for being a first responder. Then Lionel said that halfway through the song, he saw Francisco fly out of his nervousness and give exactly what he’s all about, which is “true talent”.
