The American Idol source told JustJared.com that “Wyatt could not continue due to personal reasons, and we cannot comment further.”
It’s unclear what happened in Wyatt‘s personal life that led to his exit, but we do know that he is already home in Park City, Utah. He shared a post on social media five days before the live show aired.
“Something to feel this through: home. Thankful for the rollercoaster I’m on today. 💙,” Wyatt wrote on Instagram along with photos of the mountain range and the snowy roads.
