Last week, American Idol welcomed a bonus contestant into its final round, but this week, two members of the top 13 were sent packing. On Thursday, Jasmine Murray and Jorge Nunez chatted with reporters about their Idol exits and what's next for them.
--Both of them are headed back to school. Jasmine's a junior in high school, while Jorge's a college student looking to become a lawyer. Both said they'll continue on with their studies.
--But they both plan to keep singing. "Music is my priority now," said Jorge, while Jasmine said she wants a career in music after college: "It's really where my heart is."
--They think the new "judges' save" is just fine--even though it didn't help them. Jorge said that after he first heard of the twist, he figured it would be something like this rule, which will allow the judges to save one competitor one time this season. "I kind of imagined it was going to be something like that, being that this year there's so much talent in the show," he said. Jasmine said she had faith up till the end that the judges might use the save on her, but "they probably wanted to save it, so that's OK with me."
