‘American Idol’ fan favorite Louis Knight shares excerpt from the new song.
Louis Knight was a popular fan contestant on season 18 of ABC’s “American Idol,” and even got the chance to return as a comeback contestant on season 19 of the show.
Although he didn’t win the comeback slot in season 19, Knight still made an impact on many viewers with his original emotional and personal song, which he sang to get the votes for the return.
Now Knight is busy making his way into the music industry alongside a few other American Idol candidates.
Knight shared part of a song he was working on in an Instagram video on October 8, 2021.
“This is a song for anyone who tends to have really bad anxiety and think about everything, especially when you’re in a relationship,” says Knight in the video. “It would be great to know that I am not alone.”
Then he tumbles on his acoustic guitar while he sings his song.
“And I always think about everything,” he sings, which sounds like the chorus of a song. “And I’m working on it, but you’re showing me that your heart can only heal what it’s supposed to be.”
Fans seemed to be enjoying the video and headed to the comment section to show their support.
“Great voice,” wrote one person.
Another commented: “I love your voice and your style.”
There were plenty of heart emojis in the comments section too.
Knight also recently shared a cover of Billie Eilish’s “Happier Than Ever,” dedicated to people who talk badly about others on the internet.
“So, I hate doing that, but fuck you with anyone who does,” Knight says in the video before performing his cover.
Not alone in his quest to be a huge hit in the music industry, Knight teams up with other former American Idol contestants to have fun and work on the music.
Knight shared a photo of himself with Wyatt Pike and Francisco Martin, who both participated in American Idol, Pike in season 19 and Martin in season 18.
Martin’s own post of the photo came with the headline “fwends to the end” while Pike showed another picture promoting an upcoming show.
Knight will also accompany Martin on an upcoming tour date and stand in for “American Idol” alum Hunter Metts, who was previously part of Martin’s tour.
“You may have heard of it, but … I’m going to be on his show in Chicago, Illinois – October 25th and open up @franciscomartinmusic for my brother!” Knight wrote on Instagram on September 10, 2021.
Martin also posted about the tour date.
“Tour update: Hey guys, @hunterjmetts won’t make it to the Chicago date at @lh_schubas (his loss of course …) so I asked my good friend @louisknightmusic to come with us and hang out with us that night! If you haven’t bought your tickets yet, get them now. It will be a wild ride. Link in bio “, wrote Martin.
“American Idol” will return in early 2022 for the monumental 20 season.
