'American Idol's Joey Cook on Quentin Alexander: 'What He Did was Beautiful'



Quentin Alexander was upset to see Rayvon Owen and Joey Cook in the bottom two of American Idol's competition this week. He voiced his concerns, calling the situation "wack," before Harry Connick Jr. responded to the whole mess. Alexander apologized, but Cook thought the gesture was a heroic deed.

The two contestants became very close over the past months, and Cook thought Alexander's mini-outburst was the perfect example of his personality.

"I pretty much just told him what he did was beautiful, in my opinion, and it was the perfect representation of him," she said, Billboard notes. "Quentin is a very emotional person. He's very 'all cards on the table.' There is no sugar coating. He doesn't hide his emotions. He's honest. He's a raw human being, and I think what happened last night was the perfect example of that and how emotional of a person he is."

Cook said that the two have been close since "Hollywood Week," which is when they started to realize some similar personality traits in one another.

"We really helped each other out a lot with that while I was there. I am going to send all my good energy to him. I know he is going to do amazing things on this, and I love him dearly. I cannot wait to see him again," she added.

With Cook's departure, there are only six contestants left: Alexander, Jax, Clark Beckham, Tyanna Jones, Rayvon Owen and Nick Fradiani.

Currently, Tyanna Jones and Clark Beckham are favorites to win the competition, but it's still a close one. Despite being in the bottom two a few times, fans seem to really love Owen. Things could go either way for Alexander next week following his outburst.
