X Factor's Dexter Haygood Says He WANTED To Be Eliminated!

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinutePerezTVX Factor

Sorry Dex, but we're not buying it!

Back in September, we were introduced to 49-year-old X Factor contestant Dexter Haygood (above), who made it VERY clear that he NEEDED to win the competition…especially since he's homeless!

Now, Dexter has been eliminated…but he claims it's because he wanted to go.

Here's what he had to say about it:

"I wanted to leave the show because I was unhappy that I was unable to be a rock artist. I grew up on rock."

"I was treated more like a character than an artist. This is TV, they want a good story, you know? But they took that and I didn't get a chance to be an artist. I was doing things I would never do."

"[Producers] seemed to have their way of doing things. I'm not sure why they wouldn't let me be me."

And here's Dexter on his claims that producers allowed him to exit the show, as long as he agreed to return for the finale:

"They (producers) took the opportunity to cut me, to let me just fly and do things the way I want to do them."

We can understand why he'd want to save face after getting cut, but we don't believe this. It's a nice thought, but we really don't think this is how it went down.

What do U think REALLY happened with Dexter Haygood?

    I believe him. Absolutely. He does have talent. He would be great in a show like Legends in Concert out of LaS Vegas…



  2. 2

    I believe him, did you see shit Nicole made him sing? Effing Britney Spears or whatever that circus was, I thought she was out of her mind.

    Re: WowzaChild – It was "I kissed a Girl" by Katy Perry. It was ridiculous! She made a joke of him.

    No wonder Simon is giving Nicole grief about the song choices she is making for her singers. She needs it. Simon picking Despardo for Melanie was incredibly brillant. The song that Stacy sang last night was great. First to go tonight will be Astro or Marcus or Rachael or Intensity. Top 5 Melanie, Drew, Josh, Stacy, Stereo Hogzzs. Simon made a mistake. He should of had a winner in each category, winning 100K. Then the winner of each category would compete for the 5Million dollar grand prize. ex. winner of the girls Melanie, group Stereo Hogzzs, boys, Chris Rene over 30's Stacy or Josh then Melanie, Stereo Hogzzs, Chris Rene, Stacy or Josh would compete for the 5 Mill! Much better ratings for this formula, Simon!
