Ryan Seacrest reconnected with season 14 American Idol alum Jax on-air on Friday, November 19. The songstress came in third during Nick Fradiani's season of Idol in 2015 but has since found success on TikTok after overcoming her battle with thyroid cancer.

Jax shared that while battling the illness she faced a couple of years not able to sing and was focused on songwriting, but when COVID quarantine hit she had to rethink her strategy, not to mention, relearn how to sing and even brush her teeth post-surgery.
