Eliminated American Idol finalist Dexter Roberts already has big plans ahead for what he’ll be doing next. After the American Idol Live Tour this summer, Dexter plans on checking out what sort of trouble he can get into in Nashville. He also would love to have a reality TV show of his own!
In an interview with FOX Audio Central after his elimination, country crooner Dexter Roberts said being on American Idol 2014 has been a “crazy” experience but he had a “great experience.” He can’t wait to set out on tour with his American Idol season 13 buddies this summer, and then get on to the hard work of making his mark on the music business. And maybe even TV too!
