*He may have sealed his fate when he took an unscripted moment to school Harry Connick Jr. last week, but ousted “American Idol” contestant Quentin Alexander isn’t looking back.

On his long journey through “Idol,” Alexander says “I’ve learned so much. I’ve gained so much knowledge and learned things about myself that I wouldn’t have learned without this experience.

“I’m just very grateful for everything that I now have, to take advantage of the industry and take advantage of these opportunities that may or may not come my way, and take advantage of the opportunities that I’m going to create for myself.”
