Kimberley: (about her American Idol experience) It was a tough decision because in my mind, I had this road that I could see down. It was clear, there was no fog. And now I was going down this road that was very foggy, and I couldn't see my hand in front of my face.
Kimberley: One time my dad was driving me to my babysitter's house, and I didn't let him turn on the radio in the car, because I wanted to sing the whole way.
Kimberley: My mother bought me these books that were sing-a-longs - the Getalong Gang, Rainbow Bright, The Care Bears...I used to listen to them over and over and memorize the songs.
Kimberley: The biggest mistake that an 'American Idol' contestant who doesn't win can make is thinking that once the show is over, it's going to be handed to them. It wasn't handed to me.
Kimberley: If American Idol was the Olympics, I'd still get a medal. It was a great race.
