With rock, country and pop medleys, the debut of Jennifer Lopez‘s new single “Ain’t Your Mama” and a beautiful David Bowie tribute, tonight was full of incredible surprises.
Of course, we also found out who won the whole damn thing!
Smith was involved in a multi-car, wrong-way collision on I-240 just outside Oklahoma City at around a.m. Smith died on the scene of multiple blunt force injuries, according to the Oklahoma Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
Smith appeared on Ruben Studdard’s season of “American Idol” (Season 2), finishing in eighth place.
Smith was honored by the state of Oklahoma in 2003 for his performance on the show.
Studdard wrote on Instagram that he was in “utter disbelief” following the news.
“As I sit here in utter disbelief about the fact that you went to be with the Lord, I think back on all the fun times we had. I’m sure you’re in heaven singing you’re heart out!
