While most contestantswho try out for American Idol likely have the primary goal of winning the competition, recently eliminated American Idol finalist Amanda Overmyer had a different agenda.

When Amanda Overmyer was recently asked what she thought of the American Idol judges’ comments to her, Amanda replied, “When I was done singing, I was done singing. It’s just kind of like when those judges would give their comments I just wanted to be respectful and listen, but the comments weren’t going to sway me one way or the other as far as what I was going to do. The objective of being on this show was to go up there and show America me, perform like me, and look like me, and see how well it would take. The comments from the judges are based more on the idea of trying to win, and I just had a different agenda.”

When asked about the judges’ constant bickering, Amanda Overmyer reiterated her earlier statement. Amanda said, “As far as the judges bickering and all that, like I said before, their comments are based on excelling within the competition, and that wasn’t really my objective.” Amanda went on to express that she wasn’t affected by the bickering. Amanda explained, “I mean that doesn’t bother me, that’s just part of good TV. If they didn’t do that no one would want to watch it.”

When asked to explain her agenda, Amanda said, “Well, up until this point, it was just to get my sound out there and my performances out there, you know, see if I get any bites.”

    We always knew she was not going to win. What a great attitude! http://www.yooohaaa.com had her ranked 6th, but it looks like her fanbase didn’t come through ..and it never helps to have to sing first. AManda will be a big star. Yooohaaa.com has been picking Brooke White to win all along.
