Heejun Han has joked his way through American Idol this season, but following his elimination he had some pretty serious gripes about his guest mentor Diddy, who he says was “kinda drunk” while working with him.
The 22-year-old singer was sent home Thursday night, but he took a swipe at his mentor Diddy in an interview following the show.
Han told The Insider that Diddy was “kind of drunk when we were having our mentor session,” and while he praised Stevie Nicks he advised, “You do not wanna be durnk when you’re coming to American Idol session, OK?”
His rendition of Leon Russell’s A Song for You failed to muster enough votes to save him despite Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez’s enthusiastic reactions to his performance on Wednesday night.
Heejun also said he’s not going to be following the show anymore either, and isn’t going to root for any fellow contestants.
“I was rooting for Jeremy, Sharon or Erika … but [that] didn’t happen so I’m not gonna root any for now. I’m just gonna watch The Voice.”
Things will be getting totally radical next week when the top eight contestants tackle songs from the 80s.
American Idol continues Wednesday at 8/7c on Fox; the show’s eleventh season winner will be named May 23.
