VIDEO: Jurnee Quits ‘American Idol’ Live! Tour Citing Health Issues
In a now-deleted Instagram post, Top 7 finalist Jurnee announced that she is leaving the American Idol Live! Tour due to health issues. You can watch the video here:
To sum it up, Jurnee was diagnosed with vocal nodes. Because of this, the show in Denver tonight is likely to be her last one, at least for a while. She is planning to take a month off for now. Jurnee hopes that by taking care of it sooner rather than later, she will be able to recover quickly and fully. If she continued on the tour, she feared she would never be able to sing again.
Fans immediately sent their well-wishes to Jurnee, posting encouragement on social media. “You’re amazing, keep singing and don’t let life get you down!” one fan commented. Another fan posted a photo of Jurnee with the caption, “We love you and your health is always gonna come first!!”
But now that the post has been deleted from her Instagram, a lot of questions are being raised too. Is she alright? Did she announce the departure before she was supposed to or allowed to? Or is there something else behind it? With the recent set list for the tour we uncovered, it seems that Jurnee is only performing “Never Enough” as a solo song. The rest of her numbers were with an ensemble. Could she be unhappy about that? It’s very likely she would need a “health” reason to quit the tour because of her contract obligation, but there’s nothing to back up that claim.
All we can say is that we hope she is okay and has a speedy recovery! Jurnee definitely earned her spot on the tour so it will be sad to see her go. We wish her nothing but the best!
