Elise Testone on American Idol Elimination: Shocking!

by at . Comments

Elise Testone didn't see it coming.

The 28-year old crooner told reporters, soon after her elimination from American Idol last night, that she felt "completely successful... in every aspect" with her rendition of Jimi Hendrix's "Bold as Love" and was surprised when she heard her name called by Ryan Seacrest.

Still: "I accepted what happened to me as soon as it happened,” she said. “I just thought, ‘What’s next? What am I going to do now?’”

But while Testone looks to the future, she does have something to say about the past; namely, the judges' critiques.

"Some things [the judges] say don't line up with what I feel I've learned on my own," Testone said. "I don't always feel like [their feedback] was helpful. I'm not saying I'm the best. I don't think for the most part it always made sense."

Fair enough. And what does she have planned next?

"I'm going to reach out to everyone. [Queen's] Brian May and I are pretty much best friends now, so we're going to hang out. Ellen [DeGeneres], we're pretty much homegirls. I haven't met her yet, but she tweeted me and said she loves me."

What do you think, Idol viewers? Do you agree with Elise's ousting?

She deserved to leave. Elise is definitely not as good as she thinks she is. Brian May and I are pretty much best friends?? Ellen tweeted that she loves her??? So what??? This is show biz!!!! Get a grip!!! She is in for a very rude shock if she doesn't get off her high horse and realise that she is nothing special....

Never liked Elise, from the beginning her voice grated on my nerves. Her personality and attitude only make it worse for her - what an overconfident, unqualified, unpleasant person. To have made it so far is an honor and a privilige. Her sense of entitlement is what is shocking, not her ouster. Cannot believe she lasted as long as she did, without any talent to merit her presence. Tour will certainly be a pain with her on it.

I never cared for Elise and was surprised that she didn't go home sooner considering how many times she was in the bottom three. Anyone of the remaining five couid win although Hollie seemms unlikely. Idol really has a group of great singers.

I really thought she would be in the top 3. She is awesome. Her, Skylar, and of course, PHILLIP are the best. Phillip will win!
