A Rhea County teenager competing on this season of ‘American Idol’ has been eliminated.
Drake McCain’s final performance aired Sunday night on the show’s first-ever three-hour episode that was filmed at Aulani, a Disney resort in Ko Olina, Hawaii. The top 40 contestants were cut to 20.
McCain was among those cut following his rendition of “Girls like you“ by Maroon 5.
American singer and ‘Idol’ co-judge Katy Perry tweeted at the aspiring singer Sunday night, encouraging him to continue following his dream.
