Megan Joy

Just hours before being reunited (finally) with her 2-year-old son, Megan Joy came by TVGuide.com to discuss her solid run on American Idol.

Reflecting on her exit, she says, "I honestly wasn't thinking about being eliminated until the day of." After all, she notes, "They did give me the Wild Card, and they kinda liked me, sometimes."

Yet in the end, she admits, "I obviously blew it."

Especially during the fateful Top Downloads/Top 40 theme week. Megan says that because she doesn't listen to a lot of mainstream music but instead favors "underground" tunes, "I didn't really get a chance to shine."

Also in this video Q&A: Megan updates us on the feud between her "punk" brother and Idol judge Kara DioGuardi, talks about her calling-card tattoo, and goes along with our suggestion that she smuggle pint-sized Alexis Grace onto the summer tour!
