Idology: Jeremy Rosado on Iovine Insults, Nice-Guy Edit and His Ballad-Heavy Repertoire

Jeremy Rosado is living proof that sometimes, nice guys finish 13th. And while that’s not exactly where the 19-year-old Florida native was hoping his American Idol Season 11 journey would end, he’s got an upbeat, philosophical attitude about it all. Rosado sat down for his Idology interview to talk about the tough comments he got from mentor Jimmy Iovine and judge Steven Tyler, that weird bubbling pool featured in the Vegas-round solos, and why you didn’t hear him cover more uptempo material during his Idol run.
