Devin Velez Talks Life After American Idol

Devin Velez was the latest contestant voted off this season of American Idol.

The 17-year-old singer hopped on a call with press afterwards to talk about life after AI, going back to high school and more. Check it:

On going back to Starbucks: “I want to go back for money reasons but don’t know how it’s going to work. I don’t know if I’ll be writing Caramel Macchiato on cups or signing autographs.”

On Prom season approaching: “Prom is June 1 so I hope the publicity doesn’t get too busy. I want my last teenage years and want to live it up.”

On American Idol: “Making Top 10 is winning for me. I’m blessed to make it this far. Leaving doesn’t mean the end for Devin. I’m not changing who I am. I gave them 100 percent. As long as I have my Devineers, everything will be okay. I want you to keep voting for me in life and in everything I do.”

    No way he should have been out but I am sure he will have a successful career anyway.


    I think Devin Velez will be just fine, he has some incredible talent that won’t be overlooked and I know we will see him pop up somewhere here soon. I still find it shocking that he was eliminated and I was a bit upset about the whole scenario. I used to hate the fact I worked at DISH during that time, and couldn’t watch my shows until the next day. I’m glad I upgraded to the DISH Hopper DVR, so I no longer have to fight my timer conflicts or pick and choose shows. I can use the PrimeTime Anytime feature, which records the 4 major networks automatically during primetime hours on one TV. This means the wife and kids can still watch their shows on the other TV’s instead of being stuck with recordings.
