The Arizona stop on the American Idol 2013 summer tour went on without Lazaro Arbos, who was fighting off an infection.

The Season 12 alum let his fans know the situation on Twitter, writing, “I won’t be performing in Arizona tonight due to a really bad infection I got.”

The sixth-place finalist expressed his disappointment, writing “it breaks my heart, but I expect to be better by next show."

Ironically, Arbos’ shining moment in the show is his reprise of Michael Buble’s “Feeling Good.”

The next stop on the Idol tour will be on July 27 in Grand Prairie, Texas.
