Idol's Dexter Roberts Talks Song Clearance Woes, Anthemic Country Jams and More!

Tip your cowboy trucker hat: American Idol‘s 7th place finisher Dexter Roberts is in the house for a live interview discussing the trouble with rearranging songs, the stress of “Rush Week” and the unexpected Group Night twist on the Backstreet Boys!

We also talk about why we didn’t see more “Dexterization” during his Season 13 run, what went wrong with his rendition of “Cruise” and how he felt about essentially dueting with Season 8 standout Allison Iraheta during his cover of “One Mississippoi.”
