‘American Idol’ Frontrunner Kenedi Anderson Quits Show For ‘Personal Reasons’

Kenedi Anderson will not be your next “American Idol.” After the 17-year-old wowed viewers at home with a beautiful rendition of Christina Perri’s song “Human” for her pre-taped top 24 performance, the show’s frontrunner dropped out of the competition. “For personal reasons, I’m unable to continue on American Idol. This has been one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make, but I know it’s necessary,” Kenedi penned on Instagram.
