Burnell Taylor has apparently watched a few episodes of Idology this season — and he’s not afraid to dish out what he’s gamely taken during my weekly American Idol pow-wows with cohost Melinda Doolittle.

The Season 12 seventh-place finisher dropped by TVLine HQ to talk about his ’80s-leaning fashion sense, his infamous group performance with Lazaro Arbos and Devin Velez and what he perceived as unwarranted criticism over “not knowing” the Beatles’ “Let It Be.” (Spoiler alert: Burnell says there’s a difference between knowing something and knowing it well enough to be comfortable covering it on live TV.)

Other gems from this freewheeling conversation: Which song Burnell considered in place of “I’m Here” down to the final seconds before his memorable audition; why he chose Ruben Studdard’s “Flying Without Wings” for Top 10 week; and how he approaches learning a new song. All that, plus Burnell pays proper homage to the Idols who came before him.

Press play for the whole enchilada, and for all my Idol-related news, interviews, recaps and commentary, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!
