Dexter’s farwell song was “Lucky Man” and he explained to our own Tom O’Neil during Friday’s webchat, the contestants get to choose their own exit song. “They give us a few songs and we have to pick from that list what song we would want to sing on the show. Sometimes they’re good songs and sometimes they’re bad songs.”
On “American Idol,” Dexter sang close to two dozen hits throughout the competition, beginning with his audition song “Drive” and ending with the song that got him booted “Muckalee Creek Water.”
He also got to perform two duets during the live rounds — “Alright” with C.J. Harris during Top 8 Week and “Islands in the Stream” with Jessica Meuse during Top 8 Week, Part 2 — as well as this week’s trio “Compass” with C.J. and Jessica.
