A Few Words from the Latest American Idol Finalists

by at . Comments

One-half of the eventual 12 finalists on American Idol have been chosen.

Last week, Kris Allen, Allison Iraheta and Adam Lambert became the latest trio to receive the nod from viewers.

Following the news that they had advanced to the finals, each of the aspiring singers took part in a conference call with reporters. Here are a few highlights from it:

Kris Allen, on lack of airtime prior to semifinal audition: "I wasn't looking for the cameras and trying to put my face in there."

Adam Lambert, on being pigeonholed as a theater performer: "I don't listen to show tunes on my downtime"

Allison Iraheta, on experience of winning "Quinceanera", a 2006 Telemundo contest: "It helped me out with being on the stage in front of cameras a little. [But] it's nothing compared to this."
