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.”

Idol‘s Top 6 are Quentin, Rayvon Owen, Jax, Tyanna Jones, Nick Fradiani, and Clark Beckham.

Idol's Quentin Alexander Told to Go Home of Harry Connick Jr (Video)

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.
