Many American Idol fans are still reeling from Kenedi Anderson’s sudden departure in season 20 — and that includes the judges. In a recent interview, Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, and Katy Perry got candid about Kenedi quitting the competition, sharing how “heartbroken” they felt to see her go. Still, they knew Kenedi would succeed either way. Here’s what the judges had to say.
Kenedi Anderson announced her departure from ‘American Idol’ in the Top 24
Kenedi performed in Hawaii during the April 11 episode of American Idol, just like the other members of the Top 24. However, fans didn’t know until her performance ended that it would be her last in the competition. Instead of reminding viewers to vote for Kenedi, host Ryan Seacrest announced that she had dropped out after taping the Top 24 episode.
