Colton Dixon has admitted that he didn’t like the way he was portrayed on American Idol last week.
The 20-year-old was eliminated after performances of Lady Gaga’s ‘Bad Romance’ and Earth, Wind and Fire’s ‘September’.
Dixon told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show that he was not happy with the way he came across on TV.
"After seeing myself come off the stage after 'September', I hated the way I looked on camera and was portrayed," he said. "And I looked over at you [Seacrest], and I was like, 'Man, TV editing is something, huh?'
"I think that was another contributing factor and that's one of the reasons I apologised on stage that night [after the results]."
"Here I am trying to be someone that people can look up to and to start a movement, and I acted out of character and I felt like I let some people down by doing that, so I definitely needed to make it right while I still could on the show."
