Dexter HaygoodDexter Haygood, Dexter Haygood was among five contestants eliminated from “The X Factor” last week. But he said it was not pushed out of the series – which jumped.

Rock singer James Brown with the rasp, said that what viewers saw does not reflect the whole story, including an agreement behind the scenes to ensure the quick exit he wanted.

The 49-year-old was part of the mentor-judge contestants Nicole Scherzinger, who were 30 years of age or older. According to Haygood, Scherzinger said two days before the show live on Wednesday that he was not satisfied with the Fox singing contest

“I wanted to leave the program because I was unhappy that I was incapable of being a rock star. I grew up in the rock,” said Haygood, who enjoyed the attention in the 1980s as leader of the rock group Xavion that turning on a point with Hall & Oates.

Is called to make pop songs like BeyoncĂ© “Crazy in Love” and Katy Perry “I Kissed a Girl” was worse, Haygood said, “Can you imagine Steven Tyler, Mick Jagger, James Brown, making [the crazy" in love 'chorus]‘ uh oh uh oh uh? ”

Producers “seemed to have their way of doing things. I’m not sure why not let me be me,” he said Tuesday.

Scherzinger, formerly of the P**ycat Dolls, took his complaint to the producers of the show and returned the same day with an offer, according to Haygood: He recovered in Thursday’s results show if he agreed to return to the final the season.

Neither Fox nor Scherzinger immediately respond to requests for comment. The “more than 30 years,” he reached the next round are Leroy Bell, Francis Stacy and Josh Krajcik.

Haygood said he was bound by contract to remain in the program and not to dispose, but he appreciates the corporal – despite recording contract and $ 5 million going to the winner.

“They (producers) took the opportunity to cut me, I just fly and do things as I do,” said Haygood, who said he communicated only with Scherzinger and speak directly with producers, including creator Simon Cowell series.

Cowell left of Fox “American Idol”, so it could launch the U.S. version “The X Factor”, the hit British singing competition. Fox gave “X Factor”, a promotional launch luxurious, but the show has not complied with the 20 million weekly viewers provided by Cowell, with 12.1 million watching the show last Tuesday.

Although Haygood said he was willing to follow suit before the court, decided that was due to himself and the fans are made by “X Factor” to tell his version of events.

They also expressed frustration at the amount of the sample highlighted the difficult circumstances, such as “armchair sofa living” in Memphis, Tennessee, since he lost his home to foreclosure in 2007.

“They treated me as a more than an artist. This is television, they want a good story, you know? But they took that and I have not had the opportunity to be an artist. I was doing things I never would,” he said.

For about two weeks I was in Los Angeles, was paid for expenses and 250, and 500 for the live show and for the taxi ride to the airport after being cut, Haygood said.

He expressed appreciation for the exhibition “Factor X” gave, which put him back in touch with his former band members. They are in talks for a reunion tour and can appear in the season-ender of “Factor X” he said.

“The judges are big,” he said, including Cowell, who called it “a very nice guy.”

“I understood even though he could not give me what I wanted,” said Haygood.
