Yes, Ashthon Jones became the first season 10 finalist to be eliminated from American Idol. But don't feel sorry for this aspiring artist.
"I feel like it was all in God's timing, and He has something better for me," she tells E! News." I'm not saying American Idol was not [good], but something great is what I feel in my spirit right now, and I can't wait to see what is going to happen."
Jones did break down upon receiving news of her ousting, but assures fans: "I left those tears on the stage," concluding:
"That strength has nothing to do with me. That strength comes from God. I know a lot of people don't believe or don't understand what I'm saying, but that strength comes from up above."
Heading into the top 12 performance show on Wednesday, we'll take the early favorites and ask again: Who do you think will win?
