Arthur Gunn Might Be The New American Idol ‘2020’

Arthur Gunn (who hails from Kathmandu, Nepal), leaves the judges and spectators begging for more on the Monday night debut of Hollywood Week on March 16.

Believe it or not, while the show just started, Arthur has already won the heart of millions worldwide. “This Guy is a Real Gem.” And here’s why Dibesh Pokharel aka Arthur might be the new American Idol 2020.

Arthur Gunn Audition: We’ve Heard It Before, Right?

Have you ever checked the backgrounds of some of the greatest musicians like Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Ray Charles, Bob Marley, and Eric Clapton? Do you find something common leaving the passion for music aside? Well, I see some helluva struggle in all of them.

And one of the most interesting things to look in any true musician’s life is how they kickstart their career. Arthur, 22, has a similar fate since he walked down to the American Idol audition.

Wichita Eagle reported that the young & talented kid from Kansas submitted an online audition, which thereafter led him to in-persons audition, that had attracted a huge crowd last September.

Feels like something’s cooking in the life of Arthur, who moved in Wichita, Kansas after graduating high school. For about six years now, Gunn lives with his parents and sister Rupa who showed a great level of support to her brother in the debut of Hollywood Week.

Prior to that, Dibesh Pokharel performed at local pubs in Nepal, mainly in friend’s gathering. Not to forget his classic voice on album “Khoj” where he released three singles including “Karnali (The River),” “Ma,” and “Khoj” in 2019.

Wows The Audience, Judges Begs For More

Arthur Gunn made a good impression when he first stepped on American Idol’s Sunday night premiere on February 16. Exactly a month later, Arthur leaves the people around the world in awe, while judges beg for more of his classic music explorations.


Who doesn’t begs for more, after you find a living legend in front of you? I’m sorry if I’m over-exaggerating this guy but I can truly feel his powerful voice.

Gunn gave a marvelous performance of two songs: Bob Dylan’s “Girl from the North Country” and CCR’s “Have You Ever Seen the Rain”.

After the latest performance of The Black Crowes‘ “Hard To Handle“, Katy Perry screams “More” while the other two judges and audience felt the same.

Judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel Richie believe that this lad has something extra-ordinary, something unique that nobody hates.

Which is why Luke admits “I think he might be the biggest star we’ve ever had on ‘American Idol.’”

Bryan even tweeted about Arthur Gunn saying “This dude. I could listen all day.”

“I want you to understand something, and this is me talking to you,” Richie said. “You have no idea what this journey is going to be for you. You are the story that we need to tell, and welcome to the world, my friend” says Richie after walking on stage with Arthur admitting “Oh my god, I am loving this discovery,”


One of the fans even quoted, “He may or may not win this show. But he will make a bigger name in the music, because of his unique raspy voice. People are tired of almost identical same old same old vocal.”

Surely the kid has a lot to say through his voice, but for now, let’s just hope that he gets what deserves.

Here Are Some Fascinating Facts About Arthur Gunn

  • Born in the year 1998, Arthur Gunn currently walks on 22nd years of his life.
  • ‘A love-filled childhood.’ When Arthur was a kid, his mother gave him his first guitar.
  • Arthur Gunn was featured in a seven-minute clip on the opening episode of the ABC singing competition’s 18th season.
  • Gunn’s attitude towards the judges and other contestant adds more value. Even more, the gratitude towards his homeland Nepal, (introducing ‘Namaste’ and Mount Everest) surely paved a warm path for the support from his nation.
