Wyatt had a large fan following as several people fell in love with his music. Even the judges saw great potential in him and thought he had a chance to make it big in the music industry. However, his sudden departure from the show has left everyone shocked.
Ryan Seacrest announced at the top of American Idol that Wyatt Pike left the competition, which was quite a shock to viewers. The show didn’t explain exactly why Pike was eliminated though speculation online has pointed to his Instagram, which showed he visited his hometown just five days ago. An official statement from a rep of the show (obtained by People) said Pike left the competition for “personal reasons,” which may be why he hasn’t hopped on social media to explain to folks what’s up. Hopefully, answers may come down the road.
