American Idol's Quentin Alexander Opens Up After Argument With Judge Harry Connick, Jr.

Quentin Alexander is opening up after his public argument with judge Harry Connick, Jr. on American Idol on Wednesday night (April 15).

“What kind of threw me off was how he said, ‘If you think it is whack, you can go home.’ If you think I’m being rude, to be disrespectful back isn’t right. Two wrongs don’t make a right,” the 20-year-old contestant shared with People, after Harry called him out on being ‘disrespectful’.

Quentin added, “He said I could leave. I know I can leave. He can leave as well, but he chooses to be here because he loves to do what he’s doing. And that’s the same for me. Ryan just asked how I was feeling, and I was honest. I was upset.”

He said of eliminated contestant Joey Cook, “My fear was that they’re going to pit both of us against each other [in the bottom two], but I was also very uncomfortable that I [got voted through] and she didn’t. But I’m happy that she gets to branch out and flourish now because she is a monster. She gets the chance to fly now – to soar.”
