What happened to Fire Wilmore during her audition?

Fire Wilmore was the final contestant during the fifth week of Season 21 American Idol auditions. She performed Talking to the Moon by Bruno Mars but the judges weren’t entirely happy with it. Katy Perry asked Fire to not slip into falsetto and rather embrace her full voice. Yet Perry was the only judge who was willing to give the performer ‘yes’.

Katy Perry comforted Fire Wilmore by saying that some way or somehow she will find whatever she was looking for. At the exact moment Wilmore’s daughter announced that she found the Golden Ticket which she took from the wall. The distraught mother asked her daughter to put it back on the wall. This incident earned Fire a second rare chance to audition for a second time at Nashville. While some people considered this situation heartbreaking, others thought of it as a staged situation.
