Former American Idol Contestant Dead at 31

CJ Harris, a former “American Idol” contestant who made it to the top 6 in 2014, has died.

A family member tells us CJ suffered an apparent heart attack Sunday night in Jasper, Alabama. He was taken to a local hospital by ambulance, but didn’t make it.

Fans of the show remember the Jasper native auditioning for the judges back in 2014 in Salt Lake City, blowing them away with his version of Allman Brothers Band’s “Soulshine.”

Judge Keith Urban told CJ, “You sing ’cause you have to sing, not ’cause you want to sing. And I mean that in the deepest way. And that’s why it’s so believable and real.”

Following his incredible audition, CJ rocked America with powerful versions of “Too Close,” “American Woman,” and “Free Fallin.” He was chosen by the judges as a wild card in the semi-finals after not receiving enough votes, getting kept in the competition — making it all the way to the top 6 before getting eliminated.

After “Idol,” CJ performed with Darius Rucker at The Grand Ole Opry, someone he’s said was a massive influence on his style. He even played for audiences in the competition show’s season 13 tour.

He was only 31.

  1. May he RIP and may Jesus comfort his family. We all know what caused this we don’t even need to say it anymore. but there is a Man whose last name begins with F and he needs to pay.. He needs to spend the rest of his life in solitary confinement thinking about what he has done.

    1. Imaginary Jesus/religion has also caused the deaths of hundreds of millions… Catholic Hitler was poster boy for that… as was EvilJFK/EvilDiem… Hitlerite Jokementia Bribery…

  2. When the fake vaccine began the death rate in our nation rose by 25 to 39% and the majority was young people having heart attacks. Sports players and across the board just suddenly die but no one mentions they had the jab forced on them.
