Francisco Martin (age 19) from San Francisco, California sang “You’ll Be In My Heart” from the movie Tarzan during the Top 7 Disney Night/Mother’s Day performances on American Idol 2020 (Season 18).
American Idol judges Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie, and Katy Perry loved Francisco’s performance.
Lionel Richie said they’re witnessing the tranformation of Francisco. He said Francisco was actually smiling at himself several times during the performance, showing confidence and enjoyment, emotions which the audience love.
Katy Perry agreed with Lionel and said Franciso looked relaxed and all the self-doubt has been stripped away. She said what Francisco gave at the end was what she wanted from Louis Knight. Katy thinks Francisco was spot on in his performance and at the end, “you let us have it with the talent of your voice.”
Luke Bryan said that in his performance, Francisco was like King of the Jungle, and in his opinion, “felt like King of American Idol.”
