      My mom didn't just leave to go live with someone else no explanation; she died. I relate to this song because my dad did. This is the definition of when my dad left.

    61. john sallese

      American idol is about judges hugging contestants and this covid ruined it, it gives the contestants that extra boost they need knowing that a celebrity loves their voice. Its upsetting really.

    62. Janet Fatimah

      Three compassionate and humble down to earth Judges. God Bless the Judges and the contestant and her dad and her siblings

    63. Faithdestinyhope Gonzalez

      I don't know who needs to hear this but always follow your dreams even if it may seem like you want to give up don't keep on going hold onto your faith and just live life like it's your last day here on earth.Blessings to everyone be safe and enjoy the moments that you do have here now with the ones that love you.

      Don't be so quick to judge DJ's mom...there is always more to a story than meets the eye

      1. bob sponge

        Please tell us her story.

    69. Sharon Snover

      Incredible talented amazing young lady as well as her original song which I hope will be a message that reaches others to not allow others choices limit her gift and abilities and use this as a pathway for healing. I was disappointed she was let go with American Idol , however hopefully gives her future opportunities with American Idol recognition. Father support is beautiful. May God bless her

    70. Satu Moon

      Well i hope her mom watched this and was filled with regret.

    71. lorien Ray

      No parent should put down their child, she had real deep issues she took on you, not right. My Daughter had same relationship with her Father and he walked out when she was 18 months, he came and went, but I always reminded her she had me and there are some people that have no one, so I love her enough for two. You are a beautiful soul with a gift you worked hard on, you are special as you have all that love from Dad, remember that.

    72. bisket2003
