Dexter Roberts hopes to one day return to television.

The artist was eliminated from American Idol last night, but in speaking to a pool of reporters shortly after the announcement was made, he expressed as aspiration aside from singing on stage.

Dexter Roberts Says Goodbye

"I told my mom if I get kicked off sometime, I'm going to get a tepee and go in the woods and just live in the woods for a few days, just get away from the city because I'm all about staying in the woods, outdoors and stuff," Dexter said, adding:

"But I'm going to keep a singing career and hopefully have a hunting show one day - turkeys and ducks and whitetails."

And who would Roberts want to model himself after? Music wise, at least?

"I love Luke Bryan. He has some good stuff," Roberts said, explaining of Muckalee Creek Water: "I sing it all the time in the shower."

Roberts knows he has to work on his “pronunciation,” but he’s exciting for American Idol LIVE.

"[Keith Urban ] told me just to go out there and have fun, you know. Just connect with the audience more," Roberts said. "That's what I'm gonna try to do more on tour."

Do you think Roberts deserve to go home last night?

Here is a look at the remaining American Idol finalists:
