Daly did not cite a reason, only stating Gallagher “had to exit the competition.”
Gallagher was part of Kelly Clarkson’s team.
The former contestant took to his Instagram stories to tell fans that the reason for his departure was not family related, after having recently shared that his mother was hospitalized for Covid-19.
Perhaps the show will share more information during Tuesday night’s episode.
CNN has reached out to NBC for comment.
