(April 16, 2015) - The most talked about moment of "American Idol" Season 14 so far is not a performance. It's Quentin Alexander's tantrum after his first performance during American Classic week.
However, shut up is not what Alexander did.
Instead, he walked off as Connick jumped in to say that the singer was spitting in the face of the competition that is trying to make him a star.
"Quentin, if it's that whack, you can always go home because 'Idol' is paying a lot of money to give you this experience," the judge says. "To say that to the hand that is feeding you is highly disrespectful."
Alexander then returned to the stage to confront Connick and the tension was palpable for those, like Zap2it, who were in the audience. While he clarified that he was referring to his personal feelings about who was about to be eliminated, there was still had an angry air to the exchange.

Twitter, per usual, was divided:
