VIDEO: ‘American Idol’ judge flooded with complaints about ‘horrible decision’ on show
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:
“American Idol” fans aren’t too pleased with judge Luke Bryan, who broke the news Sunday to contestant Nick Townsend that he wouldn’t be advancing to the top 20.
The 26-year-old Nebraska native, who now lives in Los Angeles, was instantly a fan favorite when he wowed the three judges with his audition of James Bay’s “Let It Go.” His emotional backstory brought both the judges and viewers to tears when it aired.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The reason that I’m here today is for my brothers,” Townsend explained to the judges during his audition, revealing that he lost both of his siblings — Zack and Matt, who had taken their lives. A YouTube video of his audition has racked up nearly 2 million views since it was posted on March 3.
On Sunday night, however, Bryan had to tell Townsend that his time on the show was coming to a close.
“This is a tough one, it’s very heavy on our hearts to let you know that you’re not in our top 20. Man, we want to lift you up and let you understand that you are tremendously talented. Do not slow down in this musical dream,” Bryan told Townsend, according to Good Housekeeping.

I never watch #AmericanIdol but these judges are bad. I can’t believe #NickTownsend didn’t go through but some some of the guys at the end of the show did??? Do you exploit people’s trauma to get more viewers??? Then when you don’t need them anymore you ditch em??? That’s gross.

Not sure why he was cut? Dude was a beast every time he performed. Leads me to wonder what your criteria is? That dude should be in the top 20 and you know it… maybe all 3 judges should be replaced as you missed the ez decision
