Plus, Heejun has some harsh words for Randy Jackson & Steven Tyler!

Are you bummed that Heejun Han was eliminated from American Idol on March 29? So is Jennifer Lopez! “She told me she was trying to save me, but [Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson] didn’t listen to her,” Heejun told and other reporters shortly after being booted from the competition. “It was kind of sad, but Jennifer had a really really good perfume. She smelled so wonderful.”

And even though Heejun is a good sport about being eliminated, he had a few choice words for the two judges who scorned him.

“They have their own perspective toward performance, and I didn’t satisfy them,” he said. “Steven is a guy who’s nearly 60 years old, trying to tell me I’m not taking the competition seriously, and Randy is a guy with four kids. Jennifer is a hot woman, who has been saying I’m the best singer in the world, so I’ll take Jennifer as my favorite judge.”
