American Idol Judges: Dexter Roberts Elimination the Right Choice? [Interview]

What did American Idol judges Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban think about Dexter Roberts’ elimination this week? Well, neither of them seemed quite as upset about Dexter being voted off as Jennifer Lopez certainly did over Malaya Watson going home last week.

In an interview with FOX Audio Central after the Top 7 elimination results show, American Idol 2014 judges Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. shared their thoughts on this week’s voting results.

Re: Did the voters make a good choice in sending Dexter Roberts home?

Harry Connick Jr.: “You know, yeah, it’s, all we can do at this point is give them the best judgment that we can and try to help them along and it is what it is. America voted.”

Keith Urban: “I don’t totally disagree. I think Jess was very lucky to escape that tonight. I think she sensed that as well. And Dexter sang great for his goodbye song, which is always hard for people to do.”

Do you think the voters got it right in voting off Dexter this week? Who would you have picked to send home instead?
