Idol's Stephanie: "I Had a Feeling.... And I Was Right"

Sure, American Idol viewers were stunned to see Stephanie Edwards and Chris Richardson land in the bottom two on Wednesday's results show, and then see Stephanie get sent home. But how stunned was the 19-year-old Atlanta gal herself? On a scale of 1 to 10, Stephanie tells TVGuide.com she'd place her own astonishment at only "a 5, because of what the judges said about my performance the night before. I had a feeling that I was going to be in the bottom — and I was right." If she had Idol, specifically '60s pop week, to do over again, would she have done or sung anything differently? "I would have definitely chosen an upbeat, faster song," she tells us. "[But Dusty Springfield's "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me"] was the only one I wanted. I listened to it, fell in love with it, and that was it." All that's left is the 13-year-old crying.
