Awww! ‘American Idol’ named their final two contestants on April 6, and we’ve never seen a sweeter elimination. The singer sent packing seemed genuinely thrilled for the finalist, and he explained why EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com, right here!
Guys, we’re so touched by the second-to-last American Idol elimination on April 6! In a precious turn of events, the loser was actually over the moon to be stepping aside to make room for the finalist. He told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY why he was so happy to lose. Here’s his answer!
It’s official! La’Porsha Renae and Trent Harmon will be the final two in April 7’s American Idol finale. We weren’t surprised at all that La’Porsha made the cut, but Trent and Dalton Rapattoni were neck-and-neck for the second spot. When Trent’s name was read out, we totally didn’t see Dalton’s reaction coming.
The second runner up was THRILLED. He literally jumped up and down yelling “Yes! Yes!” and slapping Trent’s chest in congratulations. He was over the moon… which is so weird for someone who just lost the biggest competition of their lives. So, when all was said and done, we asked Dalton why he was so happy.
“He is one of my best buddies,” the second runner up explained EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “That is one thing that people forget about this show – that we basically live together. Their success is my success! Trent is my upstairs roommate and I always go to his room and will tonight and hang out. But I am so stoked that he has a 50/50 shot to win American Idol, that is so sick!” Awww! What a sweetie pie! We’re so happy for Trent and La’Porsha, and couldn’t be prouder of Dalton for going this far. Congrats guys!
