I first met Harry Connick Jr. in Clearwater, Florida last year and he was super sweet! If you are a fan of American Idol, he is one of the judges on the show and last night he got into an argument with one of the contestants Quentin Alexander during the live episode, chile! I don’t watch the show, I can’t stand all that noise but it was very intense from the video I watched inside! Thought to share with you.
Harry gave some not so nice comments to contestant Quentin and he responded by saying “this sucks.” He then went on to say 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(Welp he said that) “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 whack. So I’m not disrespecting this competition,” he said.
