Tenelle noted that it was humbling to be able to American Samoa, seeing that his song was about bringing people back to their roots. She dedicated the song to Polynesians around the world and said it was also an ode to her brother, who died of cancer. He was the one who encouraged her to sing, and now, for her, this song represented him. Fans loved every minute of her heartfelt performance.

“I forgot how amazing full circle is, Tenelle killed it!!!!! #americansongcontest #fullcircle” tweeted one fan. “I was silent during Tenelle’s performance, but that was because it was so important and genuine. #AmericanSongContest,” added another. “Did I cry on #americansongcontest yes what heartless person wouldn’t?!?! So much love to Tenelle from American Samoa,” one fan said. “Tenelle is exactly what this contest is about. A talent we would never have discovered otherwise, bringing the flavor of American Samoa. Her performance is such a moment. #AmericanSongContest,” one fan said. “Tenelle shows us that you don’t have to have this huge flashy show when you sing a pop song. Except maybe a few spinning pyrotechnics. She literally put her soul into the performance and you could tell she was holding back tears. Incredible Tenelle. #AmericanSongContest,” added another. “Everything about Tenelle’s performance feels genuine and from the heart. #AmericanSongContest,” another noted.
