'American Idol' Contestant Madai Chakell Slammed for Mocking Judge Luke Bryan

American Idol contestant Madai Chakell faced criticism for mocking judge Luke Bryan during her performance of Ariana Grande's "Tattooed Heart" in Hollywood Week. Chakell stopped her song twice, claiming it didn't go as rehearsed and sang a capella instead. Bryan offered her a second chance, but she responded angrily and in different accents. Despite standing by her behavior as "boss energy," viewers on Twitter were unimpressed. One viewer called her second chance "total bulls--t," while another said she showed what an "a--hole" she is. Some found her behavior entertaining but also unlikeable. Chakell's antics during her performance received backlash online.
