How Alex Miller’s Ex Responded To His ‘American Idol’ Song That Was About Her
One of the most memorable auditions from Season 19 of American Idol so far came from 17-year-old country singer Alex Miller. The contestant performed an original song about his ex-girlfriend.
Alex recently appeared on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show to talk about his experience on Idol, and he also revealed what his ex thought of his song about her. Read on to find out how it went.
Alex Miller’s Ex Heard His ‘American Idol’ Song
For his audition on American Idol, Alex Miller performed a song he wrote called “I’m Over You, So Get Over Me.” The song describes his ex-girlfriend “begging” him to take her back, but he tells her he’s over her.
Alex said his performance has led people to “come out of the woodwork” to look for him. That includes his ex-girlfriend. Alex said she “reached out” about the song, and they “had a nice, long conversation.” He said she was “very supportive” and “very proud” of him.
“I thanked her for breaking my heart,” Alex joked. However, he said she doesn’t want him back now. “She’s got her fella and everything, and it’s fine.”
How Did Alex Feel About Luke Bryan’s Response?
American Idol judge Luke Bryan was so impressed by Alex’s performance that he suggested the young singer should perform at the Grand Ole Opry, saying he’d make a call.
“That meant the world to me,” Alex said on Ryan’s show. “The Grand Ole Opry is a place that I’ve dreamed about playing ever since I was a little, bitty boy. So for him say that was almost like a dream come true.”
Ryan said they’d have to “follow up with Luke” about his promise to make a call for Alex. “That’s right. I’ll hold him to that now,” Alex said.
The Kentucky singer added that he’s been snowed in on his farm. He said they’ve been putting six or seven rolls of hay out per day for the cows since November.
