American Idol admitted the appeal of TikTok earlier in the season when the judges awarded a platinum ticket to a singer named Kenedi Anderson.
Kenedi has made a name for himself thanks to TikTokposted countless videos of her singing on the social media platform, which eventually resulted in her gaining over 130,000 followers and over two million likes.
She had a chance to get even bigger, though Kenedi left American Idol despite being a front runner in the competition.
Kenedi’s follower count is high, but it’s nowhere near the level of many TikTok influencers. This weekend, American Idol fans could discover several viral TikTok videos that are even more popular than Kenedi’s content.
