“…I just performed on Idols not so long ago. I just checked out the response on Twitter. I am sorry because I see I have ruined some people’s day and some people switched off their TV’s…I don’t have an excuse but hopefully, I will have an opportunity to redeem myself again… I just want you guys to know how I felt.
