Last week on Bravo‘s Platinum Hit, fans watched as Jewel and the panel axed Johnny Marnell after a heated session with Nick Nittoli. While some folks think that Johnny actually sabotaged the writing session in an effort to get Nick sent home, Johnny denies any such thing. Keep reading to hear what the recently eliminated songwriter had to say!
Last week on Platinum Hit, things got very heated and ugly between Johnny Marnell and Nick Nittoli, as the pair attempted a songwriting session together. Many fans think that Johnny Marnell may have attempted to sabotage Nick so that he would be sent home, but if he did it backfired as Johnny was sent packing. Johnny Marnell, however, denies any sort of sabotage and actually laughs it off as he recently said: “I tried to work with Nick and unfortunately, there’s not enough time to air everything. It’s so funny the idea of sabotage. Me as a saboteur blew my mind. In my mind, it was the opposite.” Johnny also said that he “forced” Nick Nittoli to write a bridge that the judges ended up hating, yet they loved his original hook.
After leaving the competition, Johnny Marnell also said that a lot of what we see is exaggerated, while they also edit out a lot which makes us think things are worse than they actually are. One thing that Johnny assures fans that is not exaggerated is his relationship with Jes. Despite questions that the pair’s romance was “forced” for the camera or made up, Johnny gushes that pair still enjoy one another and that they “would never create something like that out of nothing.” Johnny Marnell also said despite what happened with Nick Nitolli, he is grateful for the friendships he made on the show, and he plans to continue writing songs.
