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.
