Elise Testone on 'American Idol' Elimination

Eliminated American Idol finalist Elise Testone talks to THR special correspondent and season 9 alum Didi Benami about her last night on the Idol stage and the road ahead. 

"I wanted to make sure no one thought I was arguing because that wasn't my point at all. I feel strongly about who I am and how I feel, I don't want to hold back especially when they say I was holding back emotionally, I was like well I'll be honest, I don't want them to think that I'm never being real" she said about the judges criticism.
