Lamar Royal was a contestant on Season 9 of American Idol.

Audition[edit | edit source]

Lamar auditioned in Atlanta. He sang "Kiss from a Rose" by Seal. The judges agreed that although he did have a voice that he was not ready to advance. However, Lamar misinterpreted what they said and thought they said he had a terrible voice, which he took major offense to. He even mentioned he was a good listener, even though he continued to sing after the judges gave him criticism. It got so out of hand that the judges had to call in security to escort him out, to which he swore a lot and verbally insulted all the judges, including guest judge Mary J. Blige who he previously claimed to have a crush on.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Simon Cowell was absent during his audition.
  • His contestant marquee misspelled his hometown as "Goldsboror, NC"
