VIDEO: Megan Joy Talks about Blowing Her Chance, and More

Just hours before being reunited (finally) with her 2-year-old son, Megan Joy came by 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!Watch the video after the more

VIDEO: Alexis Grace Speaks Out about Her Too-Soon Sendoff

Alexis Grace, in all of her 4-foot-11, 98-lb. glory, came by the offices this week to reflect on her run on American Idol, which many believe ended too soon.

We presented Alexis with the poll in which 89 percent of the voters agree that a singer lobbying for the Judges' Save should be able to encore any past performance, rather than their most recent one. Impressed by the consensus, Alexis says, "It makes a strong point ... [though] there are arguments to be made for both sides."

In this video sit-down, Alexis also touches on these topics:

• Why she is particularly bummed about not making the cut for Idol's summer tour.

• Her plan to go "Dancing" during Motown week.

• Her favorite song by Pink, whom she has called her "dream duet."

• Did she really have 30 pairs of shoes with her at the Idol mansion?!

• And, of course, her future plans.

Idol's Alexis: A Different Encore Might Have "Saved" Me

Hindsight is 20/20 and yes, rules are rules. But if American Idol's week-old twist, the Judges' Save, is truly intended to drum up drama and make us wonder if a singer with one foot out the door might get plucked from the ashes, Alexis Grace (as well as Jorge and Jasmine before her) should have been afforded the chance to revisit any of her previous performances, and not just the one most responsible for getting her booted.

"I'm going to be honest — I think it could have [made a difference]", Alexis told when asked if a different encore might have succeeded in saving her. "If I sang the first song that I sang, 'Never Loved a Man,' maybe more

Idol Gossip: Have the Final Four Already Been "Picked"?

Another week, another "scandalous" (and unsubstantiated) bit of American Idol buzz.

This time, the talk is that Season 8's final four have already been decided on by producers and judges, and that two of said "chosen ones" in fact have been ruled out as possible winners.

As whispered to the New York Daily News' Gatecrasher column, a female Idol staffer is going around claiming that "the last four are going to be ... read more
