Harry Connick Jr. was a jerk last night to Quentin on American Idol
Quentin is a contestant on American Idol. He’s the black guy who wears the funky clothes and has a funky nose ring. After his performance he expressed his disappointment with the fact that one of the two remaining contestants was going to go home. He used terms like “wack” and “sucks” and he was really showing an angry attitude. Harry Connick Jr. thought that Quentin was dissing the show and he said that Quentin should not “bite the hand that feeds it”. It was a really an awkward moment and Quentin had to face off with Harry and explain what he meant, that he didn’t mean to show any disrespect, that he was just upset that one of his two friends was not going any further on the show. Surprisingly, Harry didn’t apologize after Quentin explained himself. It was pretty clear to me that Quentin wasn’t being disrespectful to American Idol (though he probably shouldn’t have said the word “sucks”). It was also pretty clear to me that Quentin’s attitude was a bit juvenile. But I thought Harry made the situation really uncomfortable.
