Honestly, I don't have any respect for him because he quit Idol...that's why I don't like him and many people don't either

Because he thought he was too good for Idol (even though he will still always be labeled as the Idol dropout), he had a lot of competition (Carrie, Bo, Constantine, Anwar, and Nadia), and he feared rejection. Basically, if he stayed and placed anything other than 1st, he would have always been labeled as runner-up, 3rd place finisher, etc. and he would rather quit and make people wonder wether or not he would have won.

Do you have proof of that? I find it hard to believe that he admitted to fearing rejection.

I heard he left cause he felt guilty that he had so much previous experience....including singing background on one of Michael Jackson's songs when he was a little kid.

He thought he was too good for Idol and hates losing. By quitting, nobody (including himself) would ever know wether or not he would have won.

A lot of them had a fair amount of experience. If he had so much previous experience and was so much better than Idol, he wouldn't have been on Idol to begin with.

I honestly don't know why he auditioned for the show to begin with if he was just going to leave before they picked the top 12!

The actual FACT is, no one knows what really happened. Personally, I believe he wanted Idol but when he got a load of the contract (which no one here is intimately familiar with, aside from a few terms that have been publicized), he decided it was wrong for him. The fact that he could leave without breaking any contract or rule shows that it WASN'T a horrible thing. It wasn't an action that should lose him any respect from anyone. And if it did, the respect of those people probably wasn't worth having anyway. People who think a guy making a decision about his career is "lying" to them need to lighten up about the whole thing because the idea that he "screwed" Idol over is laughable. They probably thanked him for all that publicity. And Clive did by signing him, lest anyone forget. Besides, they're swimming in money that Carrie Underwood has made them, so they're fine with the way things turned out.

i still feel that he should have stayed on the show. he was a sure bet for top 4 and thus more fanbase. He made a terrible business mistake
