Tweets sent out by audience members at the Texas tryouts this week reveal that a 50-year-old contestant who sang an uncomfortably sexual original song to a 16-year-old member of the crowd had a hugely negative reaction from the crowd, and received scathing feedback from the judges.
Lovato reportedly kicked off the critique by saying that he creeped her out. “I just can’t,” she said.
Britney then gave her first big swipe of the season, joking: “I want to know why let you on stage. I left uncomfortable with you even being on stage looking at me right now.”
After he also clashed with LA Reid and Simon Cowell, Lovato then told him he couldn’t sing and he spitefully accused her of using autotune in her recordings.
“No, I don’t,” she snapped back. YOU GO DEMI.
An audience member wrote on Twitter: “DEMI JUST TOLD HIM HE COULDN’T SING. HE SAID THAT’S WHY YOU USED AUTO (TUNE) AND I DON’T. TO DEMI (sic)”
“You need to leave now,” demanded LA, before Simon told him to get off the stage.
Demi then shouted after him as he left talking to teenage girls.
