We’ll probably by no means know if Beckett Rex’s sudden exit includes any darkish secrets and techniques like different American Idol contestants tried to cover. Per AOL, Rex mysteriously vanished from the High 26 like a puff of smoke, leaving no hint behind. The son of “Clockwork Orange” actor Malcolm McDowell retains schtum about his cause for quitting — probably due to a hefty NDA.
Ryan Seacrest introduced on Monday that “alternate” contestant Paige Ann was returning to the stage. “Just lately, one of many High 26 determined to bow out of the competitors, so we turned to the judges’ first alternate and gave her the life-changing information,” Seacrest introduced, per Yahoo! Leisure.
Rex confirmed he was the thriller ex-Idoler in an Instagram story on Tuesday. “I am not going to say why I did not determine to proceed within the competitors, however what I’ll say is that it was my alternative,” he wrote. “I’m without end grateful to my American Idol household, and I’ll all the time look again on the expertise with the utmost gratitude and fondness. Please go vote for my associates now as they proceed on within the competitors.” Yahoo! notes the teenager did not seem in any of Season 21’s episodes, regardless of making it to the semis. They speculate that producers lower Rex’s footage after he introduced he was quitting. Nonetheless, they did not scrub the redhead from the present’s High 26 video, the place he may be noticed leaping round within the background along with his fellow contestants.
