In case you missed it, on last week’s double elimination episode of The X Factor USA, America sent home both LeRoy Bell and country group Lakoda Rayne. During the group’s elimination, host Steve Jones said, “The dream is over”. Apparently that didn’t sit well with the all girl group that was formed during Boot Camp.
After the show’s elimination, the girl group spoke with The Hollywood Reporter and told them that they were offended by Steve’s comment. Paige Elizabeth said, “I took what Steve said a little bit personally, I found it offensive.”
She went on to say, “The dream is over? That was inappropriate. You don’t say stuff like that. That’s why I like ninja-gripped the microphone.”
The group’s mentor, Paula Abdul, added, “I couldn’t believe he said that, but I’ve explained to these girls as I’ve worked with them that it’s a TV show and people say the right things at times. Maybe it was scripted and someone who wrote it didn’t realize. It’s a hard job what he does and I think Steve realized a dream isn’t over.”
