Fans of The Voice tuned in to the show on Monday night and noticed a Team Kelly contestant Ryan Gallagher was missing.
PEOPLE confirmed that Ryan can no longer participate after he broke the competition show’s COVID-19 protocols.
Ryan told fans on his Instagram Story Monday night that a family emergency was not the reason he didn’t appear on The Voice that evening.
“Thank you everybody for your concern for my family. However, everybody’s fine. That’s not the cause of what happened tonight on The Voice,” he said. “I didn’t drop out of the show. Details are still to come. I’ll keep you posted.”
He then shared a black and white photo of himself, saying, “2020 you are an interesting one.”
In another Instagram video shared on November 16, Gallagher said that he had recently traveled back home to Michigan from Los Angeles to visit his family.
