Guy said the comedian in question 'tore shreds' off him and it became really personal. 

'I was so embarrassed, I felt like the whole room was looking at me and everything was swallowing me up. I already had people down on me because of Idol,' he explained. 

The former Australian Idol winner said he was looking forward to setting his own culture at this year's ARIA Awards, and celebrating Australian talent instead.
