Quentin Alexander gets into a super tense moment on American Idol following his first performance of the night on Wednesday (April 15) in Los Angeles.
The 20-year-old contestant received some negative comments from judge Harry Connick Jr. and then they ended up getting into a little argument.
Quentin said “this sucks” and that it was “whack” that two of his friends were in the bottom two and up for elimination that night.
“If it’s that whack, then you can always go home,” Harry responded. “Because Idol is paying a lot of money to give you this experience and for you to say that to this hand that is feeding you right now, I think is highly disrespectful.”
Quentin then clarified his comments by saying he was saying it was “whack” that two of the best performers were in the bottom two. “For my personal feelings, it sucks to see two people who I’ve grown to love go home. That’s what I mean by it being wack. So I’m not disrespecting this competition,” he said.
