Fans of The Voice were left confused Monday night when contestant Ryan Gallagher did not appear on the first live show of the season.

Out: Ryan Gallagher was forced to leave The Voice after breaking COVID-19 protocols for the sake of the health and safety of contestants, coaches and crew, Billboard reported Tuesday
The Michigan native was barred from continuing in order to protect the health and safety of The Voice coaches, contestants and crew, according to Billboard.
Gallagher had revealed on the November 16 episode that his mom, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, had been hospitalized after contracting the coronavirus.
Before his performance of Celine Dion’s I Surrender, he spoke about how emotional he was feeling as a result of his mom’s illness.
‘I worked on this song through probably the hardest things I’ve gone through in my life,’ Gallagher said. ‘If I were to win this battle, it would mean more to me than just winning. It would be kind of a life battle for me, too, that I’m winning.’
