Did American Idol Star Cameron Whitcomb Kill His Own Journey?
American Idol contestant Cameron Whitcomb holds so much talent, that he could have walked away as the winner. However, when he first auditioned, he did a backflip that rocked the judges. Katy Perry looked shocked and underwhelmed. Meanwhile, Luke Bryan almost cussed. Well, he refused to stop doing it. Did he kill his own journey to fame?
American Idol – Cameron Whitcomb Has So Much Talent
The judges and the audience liked the Canadian’s potential. In fact, like Kenedi Anderson, there was every possibility that he might have won in 2022. While Kenedi sent herself home, her fellow contestant was sent home after making it to the Top 20. While loyal fans felt sad, plenty of people felt that he killed his own chances by not taking advice.
From the beginning, the American Idol judges noticed his talent. Unusually, when he talked, he sounded completely different from when he sang. Actually, his voice was awesome, most people agreed. However, his constantly hyperactive personality distracted people from his singing performance. The judges warned him that he was too focused on things like backflips rather than on his singing. But, by the time he slowed down, it came too late.
American Idol – Fans Grew Irritated With Backflips
Whilst fans liked Cameron Whitcomb when he sang, a lot of comments across social media indicated that fans were over his backflipping. Actually, when it came to voting, fans gave him the thumbs-down and the judges opted not to save him. Typically, he simply did another backflip when he heard the bad news.
The American Idol wannabe doesn’t seem down about it too much. Taking to his Instagram he said, “I started with a backflip and it ends with a backflip.” Next, he thanked everyone for their support. Actually, it seems a bit sad that many people supported him, but as he didn’t listen to the judges, he lost a lot of fans. Cameron ended by saying, “THANK YOU! You haven’t heard the last of me yet.”
