All is not well between these two X Factor stars.
X Factor judge Guy Sebastian has called out contestant Jimmy Davis for his “disappointing” comments after being evicted from the show this week.
Davis, 21, gave an interview after his Tuesday eviction in which he slammed the reality show as a “game show” and said he was disappointed he wasn’t given the opportunity to sing his own songs.
“Standing in that spotlight was conflicting singing another person’s song,” Davis told Sydney Confidential.
“It’s an incredible experience but you’ve got to be the right kind of person for it,” he added.
Davis followed up on Twitter with a message saying “I really enjoyed my time on the show” — and that’s when Sebastian got stuck into him.
“How incredibly disappointing. After all the time & love people invested into you,” Sebastian wrote in one of a series of tweets. “Having humility and gratitude is invaluable.”
Sebastian followed up with tweets questioning Davis’ claim that the producers choose the songs.
“Sometimes producers make lists as suggestions but 90% of the time I don’t even look,” the judge wrote. “I spend hours scouring the net for songs and I take pride in our arrangements.”
The X-factor judge, 33, also pointed out that Davis had been “happy to get the exposure, get flown around the world, mentored etc” — but said the emerging musician had then turned around and made “completely false statements.”
“[I]is a huge slap in the face,” Sebastian continued. “I understand the importance of treating people kindly, having respect and being grateful.”
