American Idol dropout Michael Johns arrives at the White House dinner

 

2008 American Idol finalist Michael Johns  has passed away and at just 35 years old.

According to the medical reports emerging, there was a blood clot in his ankle and that could have been the cause of his death, but there is no confirmation yet.

Back in Season 7 of American Idol, the Australian-born rock n’ roll singer came in eighth during the finales. Since then, he’d released a post-Idol album titled, Hold Back My Heart, as well as a 2012 EP titled Love & Sex.

American Idol hosts Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson, and Simon Cowell have all responded to the young star’s death via Twitter:

Our deepest condolences go out to the Johns family. Watch a clip of his American Idol audition below.
