The 19-year-old singer and songwriter from Baton Rouge, La. said he has been isolated since receiving the news from his doctors this weekend.

Laine Hardy first auditioned for season 16 of American Idol, but did not go far in that season, making it only to the top 50. In season 17, he made it all the way to the final and won the competition.
