'American Idol' exit Q&A video with Stefano Langone

Posted on

Stefano Langone has no regrets about placing seventh on this season of American Idol. “The weight has been lifted off the shoulders,” he told EW backstage about a hour after Ryan Seacrest announced he had been voted off the show. “I’m happy that I got this far, and I’m happy that I got to do everything I got to do on this show.”

The R&B crooner will definitely miss the man who’d been his roommate since Hollywood Week in December, James Durbin — but not for long. “I’m going to be the best man at his wedding,” Stefano says. “He’s really a brother to me now, and he will stay a brother for life.”

But here’s the big question for Stefano: Is he jealous Casey Abrams got to kiss Jennifer Lopez, and he did not? “You know what,” Stefano says with a smile, “I’m not jealous. I’m happy for Casey. It’s probably one of the only kisses he’s had in a while.” Check out the entire video interview below:
