‘Nashville Star’ Rejects Don’t Think Jewel Is A Jewel

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The latest Nashville Star rejects don’t think folk singer Jewel has much value.

Teen duo Laura Fedor and Sophie Zalokar were booted off the show this past Monday (Jul. 14), after constant criticism from the judges, including Jewel, who called them too young and inexperienced.

Laura & Sophie say they learned nothing from Jewel because she never critiqued them, just put them down.

Says Laura: “She would tell us to go home, not what we could do to improve. She never gave us any direction we could use.”

Sophie agrees and says the singer was downright “disrespectful.”

Last week, after Jewel bashed the girls, Sophie rolled her eyes at one of her catty comments and was called out on stage for it this week.

She says, “It was an eye roll, but I felt very disrespected by Jewel. I apologized to her, but maybe she should’ve apologized to us. To get respect you’ve got to give respect.”

Nashville Star airs Mondays on NBC.
