Before performing the song, he spoke about his struggles growing up gay in the household of a pastor. He said in a pre-recorded interview; “It wasn’t always easy growing up as a pastor’s kid. I felt a sense of there are certain parts of me that do belong and there are certain parts of me that don’t belong.”
“The consensus seemed to be this is not a path I should follow,” he said concerning his family’s attitude on his sexuality. “There are times I do feel alone. The hardest part for me is seeing how difficult it is for my family.”
Concerning his song, ‘Almost Heaven’, he said, “Almost Heaven’ is about questioning whether there is a place for me and people like me in heaven.”
Jeremiah wowed the judges with his performance. Judge Lionel Richie urged him to “lose the broom,” and said his “incredible” voice had “passed” another piano man, Billy Joel.
