Dixon appeared on Access Hollywood Live on Monday (April 23) and revealed that he was most upset to be leaving his friends behind.

"We're all tight. I hated to leave all of them, but what's so cool is whenever I started singing, Phillip [Phillips] actually bowed his head and was praying over me and my career and that gave me chills whenever he told me that," the 20-year-old said.

The star added of his friendship with Phillips: "I got a chance to pray with him before I left, I'm so excited for what he's gonna do on the show."

Dixon also reiterated that he "absolutely" plans to release a Christian rock LP in the future.

Earlier this week, the 20-year-old admitted that he was very frustrated about how he was portrayed on American Idol.

American Idol continues Wednesday at 8/7c on Fox.
