American Idol Nurse Not Going To Chase Unicorns

Frank Micelotta/FOXWhen Ryan Seacrest revealed that Amanda Overmyer was going home, Amanda handled the news with calmness and gracefulness. When asked about her good natured way of handling elimination, Amanda said, “Yesterday wasn’t the most dramatic thing that’s happened in my life. You know, I just got voted off of a TV show, and I was thankful to be there and privileged to have that many millions of Americans vote for me just to keep me on until eleven, and for someone like me who’s completely different. You know, I’m kind of out of a different mold than everyone else in the competition. I found that very warming that I had that much support.”

Even though Amanda Overmyer gained the label of being the rocker chick, she didn’t feel that helped her in the competition. Amanda explained, “Being my own personal style helped me as far as being the quintessential rocker chick I guess, but as far as the competition itself, I wouldn’t say that it necessarily helped me, because young kids are not going to relate to me as easily as they do the other ones.”

While contestants often blame their elimination on song choice or on going first, Amanda Overmyer didn’t take that road. Amanda said, “I don’t think that the song choice had anything to do with it, because if it wasn’t that song it was going to be another song that sounded like me singing it. I don’t necessarily think it was the song choice, and you’ll never hear me pissing and whining that I was first or anything like that. I definitely had hoped for maybe like position six or seven, but it’s not how it worked out, so it is what it is. You know, I’m not going to cry over spilt milk.”

In regards to what her future holds after American Idol, Amanda Overmyer had a very realistic and responsible outlook on life. Amanda said, “I’m a very ambitious and driven person by nature, and I’m going to take calculated risks to achieve success, but everyone’s definition of success varies from person to person. Success can mean a strong healthy family, and success in whatever job that you do. I wouldn’t have it in me, if this is just fifteen minutes of fame, I’m not going to chase it my whole life trying to get it back. I’ll take it for what it is, and move on. Hopefully, it’s not. Hopefully, I can make a career out of this, but it’s not going to be that unicorn that I keep chasing.”
