IDOL's Jena Irene on Voting for Elimination: 'I Think I Made the Right Decision'
On last night's AMERICAN IDOL, the finalists were faced with a new twist as they were forced to vote between sending a fellow contestant home, or allowing the remaining singers to stick around for next week's show in which two of them would be eliminated.
Thus far, only frontrunner Jena Irene has revealed that she chose to eliminate one of the dwindling group of hopefuls. "I think I made the right decision. I was prepared for one person to leave," Jena Irene Asciutto told PEOPLE. "I thought, 'It is going to be even more nerve-racking next week because we're going to have two people going home out of five.' That's almost half."
While contestants Caleb Johnson, Jessica Meuse and Sam Woolf, (who was sent home from the competition last night), all shared that they voted for immunity, Alex Preston has thus far refused to reveal his vote. "I don't really want to say," Preston told reporters. "I didn't really care what happened. It was going to be the same outcome no matter what. It was a crappy situation, and it sucks to see Sam go."
Added Jena Irene, "I was pissed. I was like, 'What is going on?' And Jess was like, 'It's The Hunger Games!' "
