Deangelo Wallace’s audition on the X Factor was so bad, but that is not why he was detained by police. While auditioning in Kansas City on Wednesday’s show, Wallace rubbed the judges the wrong way, with his bad attitude and terrible performance.
The judges were so annoyed with the performer that they walked off the set while he was still auditioning. Wallace continued his song and then ran out of Sprint Center, still wearing his mic pack, worth about $3,000, prompting producers to call the police.
“You all didn’t let me through, so I stole the mic,” he told a producer who chased after him.
When police found the contestant, they cuffed him and brought him back to the venue, where he returned the equipment.
He was later charged with a misdemeanor, according to the show, and released.
