The Favorite Idol Contestant in the Judges says he's considering leaving the music industry

The Favorite Idol Contestant in the Judges says he's considering leaving the music industry ...

Alejandro Aranda, known to many fans as scarypoolparty, said he is considering leaving the music industry just days after American Idol judge Luke Bryan declared him to be the most gifted musician he ever saw perform on the show.

Alejandro Aranda has been named as Luke Bryan's favorite contestant.

Like parents, reality television contest judges tend to sway around requests to name their favorite contestants. But country sensation Luke Bryan, who will soon return to the American Idol judges table for his sixth year, recently revealed the contestant who stands out the most in his head as the most talented he's ever seen.

Bryan appeared for an hour-long interview on the Full Send podcast hosted by NELK in Las Vegas on September 3, 2022. When co-host Kyle Forgeard asked him to name the greatest talent of the last five seasons, Bryan replied honestly.

Alejandro Aranda, you know, is the guy who really plays guitar and piano. He plays it in a manner that he's almost created his own genre. It's like, savant stuff.

Aranda was the runner-up in season 17, finishing behind Laine Hardy, and captivated judges and viewers with his unique abilities, including his rapid-fire guitar picking. Exit Form, his first studio album, was released in November 2019, following his American Idol run. It ranked at number 6 on the United States' chart. He has released several other albums since, but none that performed as well as his first.

Arandas unconventional approach and anxieties have made it difficult to break into the music industry, leading the 28-year-old Californian to consider resigning altogether.

Fans Beg Arnada on Social Media Not To Quit

Aranda wrote in a now-deleted, middle-of-the-night message on September 15, which he also shared on his Instagram Stories. Maybe it's time to rethink the music career. Maybe opening a coffee shop!

Fans flooded the post with encouragement, begging Aranda not to give up. He has almost a million followers on social media, where he posts off-the-cuff tunes, like a recent McDonalds tribute on TikTok.

Aranda has also been very open to his fans about his depression and anxiety, which have forced him to cancel several concert dates. In April 2022, in a since-deleted Instagram post, he wrote, "I've been super stressed out lately And my anxiety has been really taking control of my mental health." But doing everything I can to keep it together and a healthy outlook on everything.

The gifted artist revealed that days after the posting, he returned to Atlanta to perform at the Shaky Knees Festival, thanking fans for showing him love when he expressed how hed been feeling. Cried a lotBut I got on the airplane And I made it to Atlanta. I'm truly grateful for all of the people who sent such encouraging messages and love.

Fans were ecstatic to see him overcome his fear of flying to do a European concert tour in July, which he eventually fell in love with. After taking a series of Instagram photos and writing, LondonWow waited 3 years for this moment. And it was absolutely amazing. Thank you to everyone that came out. I felt so at home.

Given that he will be traveling to the United States this autumn, Aranda is unlikely to give up the business anytime soon. On September 14, he asked followers via Twitter to help him promote a new song called Pieces.

Aranda was featured in Rolling Stone Magazine in January for his musical genius.

Every so often an artist comes along who emerges into the mainstream seemingly fully formed, with a style that is at once relatable and also entirely unique, according to the publication. Alejandro Aranda, who records under the nameScarypoolparty, is one such artist.

If I had to describe my sound, it's almost like being in a state of calm, but also with a noticeable fear creeping up, he told the magazine. Like a beach on a cloudy day, maybe the sun will shine, and maybe it will not.
