Caroline Kole's original composition 'Fool's Gold' may not have been picked as the winner by celebrity judge Ben Platt, but that doesn't mean it didn't leave fans impressed. Kole's song 'Fool's Gold' which is based on relationships and whether a relationship is all that it appears to be in the beginning, resonated very strongly not only with the judges but also the audience. 

Kole was paired with Shane McAnally to rework on the song. The duo managed to make an already perfect song even better. They made some small changes, which only enhanced the song further. The song's intense lyrics and beautiful melody definitely made it a very strong contender. But in the end, when Ben decided to pick David Davis's song as the winner and record it instead, fans weren't pleased with it.

Several fans expressed that Ben should have picked Kole's 'Fool's Gold' as the winner instead. A fan tweeted, "Not at all trying to be dramatic... but... HOW DID BEN PLATT PASS ON “FOOLS GOLD”?!?! @NBCSongland @BenSPLATT #songland." Another fan wrote, "3 great songs on @NBCSongland tonight, and I love Ben Platt, but he picked wrong. Fool’s Gold was absolutely perfect for him. And dammit why can’t we download the songs that don’t win?? #Songland."

"If was @BenSPLATT I would pick "Fool's Gold", 100%. #[email protected]," revealed a fan. Another fan expressed, "Okay, so ya'll know I absolutely love @CarolineKole's "Fool's Gold". In my mind this is winner, but I'm just a little biased! #Songland."



 

Despite Kole not winning, fans couldn't stop praising her song. A fan  shared, "@CarolineKole's Fool's Gold, from the first note, sounded like a big ol smash... that was beautiful #Songland." Many fans declared it as the best song to ever feature on 'Songland'. A fan pointed out, "We have to get "Fool's Gold" released. Honestly, I would love to hear Ben on it. That song just hit me to my core. I would go as far to say as the best song to come into #Songland."  

"@shanemcanally Please sign Caroline Cole  The Fool’s Gold performance may have been the best, EVER, on #Songland," requested a fan.
