Noah Thompson and HunterGirl returned to the American Idol stage on Sunday night, April 23, to surprise fans with an incredible duet.
The performance began with Thompson singing his track “One Day Tonight.” As the song progressed, HunterGirl came from the back and joined him on stage.
Originally released by Thompson solo, “One Day Tonight” is now available as a duet featuring HunterGirl.
The song tells a story about a young couple dreaming of forever. The lyrics acknowledge that not all of their dreams will be fulfilled immediately. However, he still yearns for the day when he can give his beloved partner everything she desires.
After the performance, host Ryan Seacrest joined the American Idol Alumni to ask what it was like to be back on the Idol stage since their season ended. HunterGirl has since been on tour with Thompson, with the tour continuing next week. Both singers competed against one another in Season 20, with Thompson placing first and HunterGirl finishing as runner-up.
HunterGirl is also opening for Lainey Wilson for select shows of her tour. Noah Thompson will be performing in various cities through the summer, including at CMA Fest.
