It was the end of an impressive, talented run for Thia Megia and Naima Adedapo on American Idol last night. The singers were both eliminated, as the show cuts its number of finalists down to nine.
How did they react to the news?
Backstage, shortly after hearing her name called by Ryan Seacrest, Thia told Entertainment Weekly she was proud of her song choice ("Daniel," dedicated to her brother, which she said made him "cry) and that she has a lot to offer the music world.
I can do “so much more than just slower songs and ballads," Megia said. "In the future, I see me as being my own artist and definitely not a ballad singer!”
