' journey on "" came to an end on Thursday night, April 28. The day after on Friday morning, April 29, the aspiring singer from Idyllwild, California answered post-elimination questions during a conference call with reporters, and admitted that he might have growled too much.
Asked about mentor Jimmy Iovine's "the family dog does not vote on this show" comment, the 20-year-old responded, "Honestly, it's hilarious, and it is good advice." He continued, "I listen back, and I think I was growling a little bit too much. I was having more fun than paying attention to what was going on musically. You've got to have that good balance, and I don't think I had that balance that time."
