Harry Connick Jr. Gets Into Argument with 'Idol' Contestant (Video)

Harry Connick Jr. gets into an argument with American Idol contestant Quentin Alexander during the live episode on Wednesday (April 15) in Los Angeles.

The 47-year-old judge gave some negative comments to the contestant’s performance and Quentin responded by saying “this sucks.”

He then said it was “wack” that two of his friends were in the bottom two and up for elimination that night.

“If it’s that wack, 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 “wack” 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.

Jennifer Lopez Uses Ex-Husband for 'American Idol' Critique

Jennifer Lopez looks amazing while showing off her legs for this week’s episode of American Idol on Wednesday (April 1) in Los Angeles.

The 45-year-old entertainer started the show by critiquing a contestant and telling him to take a cue from her ex-husband Marc Anthony‘s dance moves!

“Find something that makes you not think about moving,” Jennifer said. “I know one singer, who I used to be married to, who shakes his leg. Who does just a leg thing and it’s just a little thing. But it grounds him in the pocket. I feel like that’s what you need.”

When Harry Connick Jr. joked that she was talking about David Hasselhoff, who was on the show last week, Jen replied by saying, “He’s one guy I haven’t been married to.”

FYI: Jennifer is wearing a Kohl’s top and shorts from her own collection, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, a Vita Fede ring and earrings, an Effy Jewelry ring, Endless Jewelry bracelets, and a Jennifer Fisher ring.
