    • Alaina (on the reaction to her video where she doesn't like her food touching): It's really funny because on the video I look really OCD about it. But it's really not that bad. It's just a little pet peeve. I had a lot of people say, "You know, I have a friend who doesn't like all their food touching," so it's good to know I'm not the only one.

    • Alaina (on her favorite past Idols): I definitely loved Kelly [Clarkson] from the very first moment I saw her. I seriously remember sitting in my living room and she just blew me away. I also loved ...Chris Daughtry, I loved him.

    • Alaina (on how she felt like when Simon said it looked like her grandmothers dressed her): What do you say to that? It's really crazy. I actually loved the dress and, I don't know if the camera showed them, but I wore cute orange high heels. I actually wore those to make the dress younger so I was really surprised when he said that. I liked my dress and I've had other people say that they liked it too.

    • Alaina (on if it was hard to connect with older songs): It was definitely hard to portray songs with emotions when I'd never really heard them before. I was really looking forward to the '90s if I would have stayed but ... I'm really happy with [my song, 'Hopelessly Devoted to You']. I really love 'Grease.' It's my favorite movie so I'm really glad I sang the song.

    • Alaina (on if she and Kady Malloy were close): We were really good friends. It was really sad that it came down to me and her. She was actually really shocked because she told me that she was the one going home. I kept telling her all day that you need to stay really positive ... so it was kind of ironic when it came down to me and her. I'm really happy for her, though. She has a great voice.
