Hunter Metts Memorable Moments

Hunter’s most memorable moment on American Idol came when  he broke down on live television after messing up the lyrics of “Falling Slowly.” During an appearance on the Ellen Degeneres show after he was eliminated from American Idol, he  observed, “In that moment, it was intense for me, but after coming off the show, the support has been amazing. ” 

Making the Top 7 also meant getting the opportunity to record and release an original winners song that he wrote with Mark Irwin Abramson and co-produced with heavy-hitter Ian Fitchuk  Check out the romantic “20,000 Kisses” HERE.
