It's safe to say that former "American Idol" contestant Paige Miles had a tough run on the reality competition. The judges said that the 24-year-old had a strong lift-off early in the season, but pretty much crash-landed Tuesday night during a much-panned performance of Phil Collins' "Against All Odds."
Randy: "That was honestly terrible."
She really was "against all odds."
"Even if they already had in their head that they weren't going to save me, still, just the opportunity would have been nice instead of just kind of slamming the door in my face," said Miles, the day after her "Idol" quest came to an abrupt halt.
The Florida native had no illusions about her performance. She knows it was bad... but believes her lingering laryngitis had an impact.
"You know, trying to map out the rest of the competition and trying to have something left, I tried to take slower songs, which really aren't my strong suit," Miles said. "It hurt me."
Do you think the judges were little rough on Miles by deciding beforehand that she had no chance of being saved? Or should they have taken her farewell performance into consideration?
