    • Amy (on what she was surprised with about being on "American Idol"): The most surprising part for me was to see celebrities. I'm from Indiana and you just don't see a lot of celebrities in Indiana. I saw Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton and I was completely starstruck. I think Patricia actually looked at me. The first time she made eye contact with me I had this look of, "Whoa there's Patricia Heaton and I watch her on 'Everybody Love Raymond.'"

    • Amy (on if she bonded with her fellow contestants on "American Idol"): I really became good friends with Amanda Overmyer. We're both from Indiana and she lives near Purdue University, which is where I did undergrad in college, so we knew a lot of the same areas and the same venues we performed at. We were able to connect on that level. She's great, I wish her the best of luck. I wish all of the contestants the best of luck and I'll be voting for all of them.

    • Amy (on if she felt "American Idol" took a toll on her): Absolutely. I cannot tell you how much this show takes out of you -- emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually. You are working so hard and so much for most of the time, with very little downtime. But 'American Idol' is so huge, the biggest platform for a musician or performer, that you've got to give every ounce of energy. It's a wonderful opportunity, but it absolutely takes a toll on you.

    • Amy (on what she learned from "American Idol"): One of the things I learned was how a huge television show was put together. I got to see all the behind the scenes of the people that do the work. The stage guys, the sound guys, publicity, legal, all of that. I have so much respect for them and it was just really a cool thing. Sort of like when you're a kid and you're watching 'Mister Rogers' and he goes into a manufacturing plant ... to show you how something is made, that's kind of how I felt about all the people making 'American Idol.'

    • Amy (on if she was surprised about being eliminated): I really didn't have a good performance so I wasn't surprised. I was actually waiting for Ryan to call my name. I've been using an ear monitor for the past two years consistently and the way my brain works, it's very mechanical. I just could not retrain my ears quick enough to stay on key. So it was just my "bad skill" that I could not improve quickly enough.
