Now, she admits its because she lost sight of herself.
Edwards, who was voted off this past Wednesday (March 21), says she wasnt too shocked to be kicked off the show since she sort of forgot who she was along the way.
She admits feeling extra pressure when the judges started constantly comparing her to contestants Melinda Doolittle and Lakisha Jones, so she says she changed herself in order to keep up.
Says Edwards: I started to sing big ballads like Melinda and Lakisha when what I shouldve done is stick to what I do best, which is singing upbeat songs and performing.
Still, Edwards is happy she went for it and sang different tunes on Idol but hopes the remaining contestants dont change themselves for the show.
She adds, All of them are so musically different, they just shouldnt be afraid to show what theyve got.
