Gotta keep ’em humble! Though Nick Fradiani has made it to the top three on ‘American Idol,’ not everyone is a fan of the crooning cutie. In fact, one famous dude made it clear that Nick may not have his vote!
Following the May 7 episode of American Idol, Nick Fradiani seems like a lock to make it to the final two, if not win the whole dang thing. Since his audition in New York, he’s garnered fans around the country and the world. However, following his incredible top four performances, Nick revealed to us EXCLUSIVELY that Howard Stern might not be a fan. Actually, Nick recalled the moment that Howard called him “a douche!”
‘American Idol’: Nick Fradiani’s Howard Stern Experience
And when Nick Fradiani met him, he learned that firsthand. Chatting with us EXCLUSIVELY, Nick revealed Howard’s choice words when they met. “He was talking about me being at the pool,” Nick said. “He was like, ‘It’s 85 degrees, the dude’s got a beanie on, no shirt.’ So he looked at his wife and was like, ‘Look at this douche over here.’
Well, can’t say we don’t find that a little funny, but we aren’t the only ones– Nick does, too. “I got more texts from my friends about being on that than I did about American Idol,” he said. “To get called a douche by Howard Stern is pretty hilarious.”
Nick Imagines His Winning Moment
Nick also shared how surreal it feels to know that he actually has a shot at winning American Idol. “Last week, it was like, ‘Oh my God. [The finale] is two weeks away. I could actually really do this,” he said.
He also added that, if he does get that winning moment, he will have one very distinct thought. “I think of my family. I think of my mom and my dad. It takes a lot to get me emotional but just thinking of that is what I think of. My parents’ faces, that would be what I’m thinking of.”
K, we’re crying.
Do you want to see Nick win Idol? What do you think of his Howard Stern experience?
