"American Idol" Star Regrets Choice of Song
Elise Testone was one of the final contestants in “American Idol” and was eliminated in the show. The 28-year-old singer is the oldest finalist in the show. Audiences felt that the judges were hard on her because of her age, but Elise stated ”I don’t think it’s a completely bad thing when people are hard on you, because it just means they want you to be better.” Elise chose Jimi Hendrix “Bold As Love” for her song and received criticisms from the judges, for not being a ‘popular’ song. Elise stated that Jennifer Lopez gave her word of encouragement before she left, she stated “this is not the end” and to “keep it up”. Elise hopes to continue her career and will use JLo’s wise words of wisdom.
