Jonny West (age 23) from Murietta, California performed “You Can’t Keep a Good Man Down” by James and Bobby Purify during the Finale of American Idol 2020 (Season 18).
Lionel Richie commented, “What I love about you is you can take any song, any style, and make it your song. And I just don’t know how you’re so calm all the time. I want to find out what vitamin you’re on because man, you’re just chilled.”
Luke Bryan said Johnny navigates the songs like a seasoned 40-year performer. He said Johnny’s talent “it’s given from the man upstairs”.
Katy Perry said Jonny is so cool and it’s so easy for him. She thinks that in the future she will see Jonny in the industry, like she’s going to see him backstage and ask him “What’s up Jonny?”
Jonny West competed in the Finale against the other Top 5 contenders, namely Just Sam, Arthur Gunn, Francisco Martin and Dillon James. Just Sam was voted as the winner of American Idol, followed by runner-up Arthur Gunn.
