Ousted Idol Knew Her Day Would Come

HOLLYWOOD (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Ousted American Idol singer Lisa Tucker admits it wasn’t easy being eliminated but she remains philosophical about it.

As she puts it, “Either you’re No. 1 or you’ll have your time you’re going to go.”

Tucker admits the judges’ criticisms of her decision to perform the Kelly Clarkson hit, “Because Of You,” were “tough,” especially because of Randy Jackson’s constant admonitions to “pick better songs.”

In her words, “You want to please them but sometimes you want to say, ‘What song?”’

Despite her loss, Tucker says she won’t try to sway other future Idol contestants away from performing Clarkson songs, and says they should do them “if they’re feeling it.”
