"Idol" Loser Sticks Up for Brit

9/12/2007 10:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears has at least one fan ... other than cryin' Chris Crocker.


TMZ caught retoothed "American Idol" wannabeen Elliot Yamin leaving the Ivy yesterday afternoon, where he told our photog he though Brit's "performance" was "awesome ... I give it a thumbs up!"

Was he watching the same show?!

Being an Elliot fan since day one, I am guessing that he was being polite and/or sarcastic. He's just an all-around nice guy...

Prediction: 1-hit wonder has spoken. Obviously not enough critical insight to ever do anything more.

Well, at least there is one gentleman left in the world.

Oh, by the TMZ .... this guy has a hit record. Why can't you ever get your facts straight., before calling someone a wannabe.

Geez    

He's was being a gentleman which is so rare now a days. TMZ is just pissed because he didn't bash her. Her performance sucked, but not the back-up dancers and the pole things.

The guy knows she sucked. He clearly did not want to get involved.If it wasn't for controversy for this no talent,she would have been forgotten long ago.

Whatever! Elliott was being a gentleman..........which there is VERY little of at TMZ, by the way! Good for you, E, to be nice to Britney, even though she was awful!

So sweet. He had to know it wasn't good, but he never bad-mouthed anyone on Idol or after. I'm so glad he was able to find his own success away from the show.
