What happened to Caleb on American idol?

American Idol has been on television for 19 seasons, and there have been many contestants that have ended up having successful careers.

However, there have also been a few that have not had the best outcomes.

Caleb Kennedy was one of these contestants, and he ended up being cut from the show.

He was a top five finalist in the show, but was disqualified mid-season after a controversial video resurfaced.

The video was of him posing next to someone who appeared to be wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood. This was an unexpected turn of events.

Sadly, Caleb had another bad turn of events after leaving the show. Caleb was charged with felony DUI and he also killed a victim in an accident.

He faces up to 25 years in prison if he is found guilty of causing death by DUI. He is currently in jail and will not be free until his trial.

Caleb was cut from the show

This competition is where singers who are interested in becoming stars compete. It has a panel of judges who critique their performances.

American Idol’s format has evolved a lot from its original broadcast. It now features three judges instead of four, and a new format for auditions.

In addition to judging, the show also features weekly theme-related contestants who work with a mentor. Jimmy Iovine was introduced as an intern mentor in the tenth season.

The “Judges’ Save” feature was introduced in this season. This allowed finalists to be saved from being eliminated if they got the least votes.

Online auditions were also introduced for the first time in this season. Contestants had to submit a video of 40 seconds.

The show’s original three judges were Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell. A fourth judge, radio DJ Stryker, was initially chosen but he dropped out of the show due to image concerns.

Caleb was arrested

CALEB KENNEDY was a former student at Dorman High School from Spartanburg, who reached the top 24 of American Idol. He was then arrested for DUI.

The accused is charged with driving his 2011 Ford pickup truck on a private driveway, then smashing into buildings and killing the man who was inside.

According to reports, Kennedy was charged with felony DUI resulting in death.

He is accused of hitting a 54-year-old man named Larry Duane Parris while driving his truck in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

While state officials continue to investigate, the 17-year old will be held in prison. He will remain in jail while he awaits his court date.

He may also be dating an overseas woman, which could make it easier for him to remain involved with the franchise and keep his name out of the show. Any updates on Caleb’s situation will be kept in touch.
