It's back to high school for Emily Piriz.
This finalist was eliminated from American Idol last night and spoke to reporters backstage afterward about the surreal adventure.
"I'm a senior," Piriz said. I'm just gonna go back home ... go back to school and graduate."
Emily said she and Jena Irene might eventually move to Hollywood together to really give this singing thing a shot, but she had planned to go to college before and the "alternate universe" of American Idol won't necessarily change that.
