Arthur, 23, previously competed on season 18, while he came in second place behind the winner Laine Hardy.
Following the big announcement, a number of viewers took to Twitter to slam both Arthur and the show for allowing the contestant back on the show.
One fan wrote: “@AmericanIdol this comeback is still super s***ty and unfair to this year’s group of kids. He’s had a full year of gaining fans on them. He’s gonna win the whole thing.”
Another person said: “If Arthur manages to win this season, it’s completely unfair to the other extremely talented contestants who have worked their a**es off all season.”
A third chimed in: ” Alright, having @ArthurGunn122 being the Comeback is completely unfair. Runner-ups have an unfair advantage – especially in this age of social medial.”
While someone simply said “Arthur gotta go,” another wrote: ” If it’s not clear @AmericanIdol wanted Arthur Gunn to win, it’s clear now. He finished SECOND last season, he shouldn’t be allowed to compete again to steal someone else’s spot. “
Others said they have moved on from the musician, as one person wrote: “Arthur was great last year, but that was last year. Im invested in this years contestants.”
Many people agreed that Arthur’s comeback seemed unfair, with a Twitter user writing: “I swear if this Arthur guy wins its completely rigged.”
A following person added: “That’s like having Adam Lambert come back, he finished second and acquired a big fan base, like Arthur. I like the idea and concept but they shouldn’t have included people who go that far in last year’s competition.”
