Janelle Arthur Makes It Into ‘American Idol’ Top 10

The third time is the charm for Janelle Arthur. The 22-year-old country singer has won her way into the final ten contestants on Season 12 of ‘American Idol.’

Arthur has consistently impressed the judges since her audition in Charlotte, singing Keith Urban‘s ‘Where the Blacktop Ends,’ where Nicki Minaj told her, ”I think you are really, really special, and you already seem like a star.”

This is Arthur’s third season as a contestant on ‘American Idol.’ She made it to Hollywood Week in 2010, and in 2011 she made it to the Las Vegas rounds before being cut. This year she has been consistently strong with the exception of a less-than-stellar rendition of the Lady Antebellum hit ‘Just a Kiss.’ Her performance of the Elvis Presley classic ‘If I Can Dream‘ on Tuesday night wowed the judges, and America must have agreed.

Arthur sang Dierks Bentley‘s ‘Home’ as her victory song. “I’ve been a fan all along,” Minaj gushed. “You came alive today. This is the best you’ve ever looked and sounded.” Minaj added that she really believes that Arthur is destined to be a big country star.
