Antonella Barba, Sundance Head Speak on Elimination

by at . Comments

They are no longer part of American Idol.

But both Antonella Barba and Sundance Head has parting words on Ryan Seacrest's radio show this morning.

First, let's hear from the former, talking about the Antonella Barba pictures and all the controversy surrounding them for weeks:

"It was unnecessary, it was hard to deal with it, it was an unnecessary distraction ... trying to stay off the Internet, some nervousness ... I tried to get through it ... my family has been so supportive, they told me to stay focused and we will worry about all that later."

Barba added that she'd remain in L.A. to see what sort of offers would come her way.

Sundance Bows Out Sundance, meawhile, offered insight ... and bad news. He said one of the guys remaining on the show - whose name he wouldn't mention - thinks he already has the competition in the bag. (Chris Sligh, maybe?)

Head also confessed he was shocked he was kicked off - as the pseudo-vocal stylings of Sanjaya Malakar remained in the Top 12 - saying: "I had not prepared myself for that ... I was a little angry ... at this point I'm just bitter this morning."

Head's elimination was only the first bad news he received: Right after the taping, Sundnce learned that his cousin died in a fire that night. The cousin, Burl Head, had given Sundance $1500 for his stay in Los Angeles during the competition.

I THINK ANTONELLA IS NOT EXACTLY LOOKING FOR A RECORD CONTRACT. I THINK SHE MIGHT TAKES THE OFFERS FROM GIRLS GONE WILD (250,000) AND THE PORN (500,000). I THINK SHE WANTS FAME MOSTLY, THEN AGIN WHO DOESNT.

I'm not sure I think it's Chris Sligh who said he thought he had it in the bag. He seems way too down to earth to say something as arrogant as that!
