The American Idol the winner will be interviewed by Nancy O’Dell for TalkShopLive where the singer said he told the staff of his decision in January.

It’s either I can’t continue the show or I gotta go East Coast,” she recalled. “Covid, pointed out [that] being isolated and so far away from your family… that’s not good for anyone. And my family is East Coast, they’re based in North Carolina. So it’s one of those things where I just have to… and there’s also a lot of personal stuff going on.”
Clarkson explained that she felt that her children and family “really needed a fresh start” that she was unable to do because of “one obstacle after another.”
The Ever since you disappeared the singer said the move was “100 percent my idea and it’s really cool that NBC supported me because I was like, ‘Y’all, I want to do this show. I really do. I don’t even know which i will but i have to make a change for me and my family. any chance we can do it? i know we can’t do it from my ranch so any chance we can do it in new york [because] it’s closer to my family.’ That’s really the main reason.”
