Michael Johns Idolized at Regis and Kelly

Michael Johns Idolized at Regis and Kelly

Michael Johns, who was voted off American Idol last week, is mobbed by fans as he left Live with Regis and Kelly on Monday.

While fans have been sad to see him go, his booting off has been a boon to his career, which has happened with many previous Idol contestants.

The 29-year-old Australian-turned-Atlantan has been contacted by Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban and even Dolly Parton, telling him how sad they were to see him leave the show.

Michael said last Friday, “I hadn’t been in the bottom three, and I thought the last two to three weeks have been my strongest. But we’re in the competition and stuff can happen.”

    handsome guy but he needs more confidence, or charisma.. although his shyness is definitely better than cockiness that I hear some of the other contestants have? but what do i know

  • http://yahoo Yes

    Really sad to se him go :(

    Still love him!! I hope everything will work out ok for him!!!

    It made me sad to hear him sing yesterday because I realized how much I’ll miss it. He won’t be able to do anything until the idol tour is over which is a few months from now.

    But hearing him talk to them and tell of the amazing stuff that has happened for him thus far — it made me feel better that he will be okay and he will go on to have a great career. I’m definitely not watching the show anymore, I want to see what Ryan will have to say tonight though about the backlash.

  • Jennifer

    I saw the interview. Can’t believe how down to earth he is. Good luck to him in the future.

    puhlease, michael, don’t get ahead of yourself. TRUST that you were in the competition longer that you deserved to be there. Your singing is not hot but your accent was so it kept you in.

  • Suzie

    I seriously can’t get enough of this guy. If anyone saw him sing on Regis and Kelly you’d know that he’s amazing even without all the AI smoke and mirrors.

    He also comes across as so charming, genuine and humble in interviews. His wife is one lucky gal!
    I’ll watch tonight but I know it won’t be as enjoyable without him.

  • lizzybaby

    BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!! he’s so gonna be a star..look at him.

  • he was robbed!

    Hey Rita – it’s not a lack of confidence, it’s called modesty and it’s pretty refreshing to see. He has an awesome career ahead of him and all of the nay sayers that are here today and were there when Chris Daughtry was eliminated too soon, well we’ll see who has the last say on that.

  • Jennifer W

    michael was good and i will miss him tonight. i have the song of the top 20 performance and its my favorite because i love when michael comes out first singing its great and his voice is awesome. David Archuleta is also awesome in the song of the top 20 together and I hope David Archuleta is the next American Idol


    Thank You so much! I was there representing, I’m Helen.. That is my sign he is autographing!! Michael is an incredible artist and such a genuine person.. Love him!!
