    • Jared (when asked if he thought Votefortheworst.com had anything to do with him being voted off): I don't know if it messed things up. Sundance and Antonella were nominated by Votefortheworst.com, and they got voted off. I think they need to get a handle on the Web sites that vote for people like that. Yesterday was definitely not based on votes alone. You had four contestants that were either extremely talented or in the media so much that they should have gone through.

    • Jared (when asked if he thought his song choice had something to do with his elimination): I don't have any regrets. Next week is Diana Ross week. I probably would have updated one of her songs. I was just taking a school of thought from previous winners.

    • Jared (when asked if he had any theories on why he was voted off): I honestly think it was Simon's comments over the last few weeks. My performance did not warrant going home. I'm still shocked.

    • Jared (when asked on what he thought on Randy's comments about being more original): I was doing songs where they recommend you not changing them too much. I was doing Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder. I wasn't doing 311. It was a lose-lose situation for me.

    • Jared (when asked how he felt after being eliminated): I am still shocked. Honestly. It's still hard for me to swallow. I never expected to be going home this early.
