She had her doubts about surviving the competition created to find the best voices in the country, but at just 16, Tyanna Jones is officially leaving the “American Idol” competition with a renewed sense of faith.
Jones was handpicked out of thousands of hopefuls to sing her way to the top five contestants in the competition. Still, there can only be one winner of “American Idol XIV” and the Jacksonville, Florida, native knew that at any point she could be the next one to go.
One day before learning she was eliminated from the competition, Jones spoke to The Christian Post about her faith helping her get through the competition.
“There [are] times when I really don’t know what’s going on. I never [know] when I’m going to make it through,” Jones told The Christian Post. “Sometimes you’re more sure of yourself than other times but I would hate my performance so much that I would be like ‘I’m going home.’ Then I’d just pray and ask God to deal with me and help me and reveal to me and a comfort would come upon me and I would remember how blessed I already am.
