3. “July” By Noah Cyrus
For the Showstopper Round of American Idol, Hunter gave out an unforgettable performance of “July” by Noah Cyrus. This song had been performed before in season 19, but Hunter’s interpretation still stood out from the pack. Watching Hunter’s performance, judges Katy Perry and Luke Bryan couldn’t stop smiling and bobbing their heads to the melody. Throughout his experience on the show, Hunter consistently sang his heart out on the Idol stage, giving the viewers everything he’s got.
2. “Falling Slowly” By Glen Hansard & Markéta Irglová
During the top 12 episode of American Idol, the contestants were tasked to perform tracks that had been nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song.

1. “All The Pretty Girls” By KALEO
Despite his various great moments on Idol, it’s pretty hard to beat Hunter Mett’s introductory performance during his audition. Hunter sang KALEO’s “All The Pretty Girls”, and the judges were nothing but smitten with by his wide vocal range and enchanting charisma. Luke Bryan described one particular note that Hunter hit that made him feel the “real deal chills,” and Katy Perry foresaw that he’d surely make it to the top ten. Indeed, this was only the beginning for Hunter on American Idol, but little did he know that he’d make it as far as the top seven on the show.
