Eliminated American Idol contestant James Durbin told reporters today in a conference call that his elimination Thursday night was unexpected and that he was really looking forward to his hometown visit.
Here’s what Haley Reinhart had to say backstage after tonight’s Idol taping about the judges negative feedback of her Michael Jackson cover, “Earth Song”:
“Everybody else gets good feedback and they really let me have it. They don’t feel bad for me. Never have, never will. I got a little upset because that song is downright inspiring and emotional. No matter what, that hit me to the heart.”
