Top 32 contestant James Kenney received baffling little screentime during his run on "The X Factor" this season, but he made a lasting impression nonetheless with his brief but stunning Judges' House performance of Rihanna's "Russian Roulette." Many viewers, myself included, thought the guy was going to be this year's dark horse. Sadly, that turned out to not be the case, as he was cut before the live shows. So when I learned that my regular "Day After" co-host Matt Whitfield would be on vacation this week, I figured I'd invite James to be my "Day After" guest, so he could get some extra exposure and dish some dirt about his run on this crazy show.
So today, James and I discuss various show "scandals" (Dexter, Stacy, lip-synch fails), whether or not his mentor Nicole Scherzinger really lives in that posh Malibu house, who he's rooting for this season, and why winning a $5 million record contract may not be all it's cracked up to be. Watch and enjoy. James is a winner in my book!
