    • Asia'h (on what she plans to do after "American Idol"): I really believe the sky's the limit for me. I'm going to take every opportunity that I can. I've been in drama and stuff like that through middle school and high school. So maybe some acting, some commercials, maybe a little bit of modeling here and there. But definitely music, music, music! Music's gonna stay in that -- it's my heart and soul.

    • Asia'h (on which Beatles song she would perform if she had made it into the top 12 of "American Idol"): Oh, man, I was so excited about my Beatles song! I was going to sing 'Can't Buy Me Love.' It was going to be awesome. I took a sample beat from Jazzy Jeff way back in the day, so it was going to have a hip-hop/R&B type of flavor to it. It was going to be fun and original. I was looking forward to that, and I know that would have scored me into the next round.

    • Asia'h (on her favorite "American Idol" judge): I loved all the judges, but I have to say my favorite would be Simon. Everyone says he's kind of bitter, but he does know what he's talking about. He's professional and I think he gives very constructive criticism. Even though he could probably word it a little differently sometimes, he is the most harsh and he makes you do the best that you can do.

    • Asia'h (on how she got through the "American Idol" auditions while mourning her father): I think that he was with me and God was with me, and my family and friends just pushed me through it. That's what he wanted me to do. I was not going to go forward with my dreams just because of that. He wanted me to do that, so that's what pushed me to keep going.

    • Asia'h (on if she ever seocond guessed singing a Whitney Houston song on "American Idol"): I consider myself enough of a unique artist -- as far as my voice and my stage performance -- that I didn't think I would really be compared to [her]. It went through my head, but I didn't second-guess myself. [Simon] said I was a second-rate Whitney, and I will take that any day!
