Robbie Carrico Tries to Be a Rock Star

by at . Comments

During his performance on the opening night of audition for American Idol top 12 men, Robbie Carrico received one off compliment and one outright insult.

First, Ryan Seacrest compared him to Justin Timberlake. That would be flattering, except both Robbie and Timberlake dated Britney Spears in the past. Awkward!

Simon Cowell then rained on Carrico's Idol parade, saying: "I'm not quite sure yet whether you're very comfortable in this rock thing or whether you're a pop singer."
