Caleb Kennedy took a risk before shooting his final shot to make it into the Top 24 on “American Idol”.
The South Carolina native quickly switched from a Travis Tritt song before hitting the stage to an original song.
“I don’t think it’s a risk to sing an original song, because an original song is how I got here,” Kennedy said. In his original audition, he left the judges in tears after singing his original song “Nowhere”.
“I did plan to do a big old show like everybody else did, and then one of them gut feelings came along to just do an original. So I took it and I ran with it,” Kennedy told judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.
