Emmy Russell On Leaving 'American Idol'

Meanwhile, Emmy Russell opened up about leaving the show. She said it was all part of a great plan. "I didn't make Top 3, but that's part of — that was God's plan," she said. "Before I got eliminated, I think God told me, he was like, 'Emmy, you're not gonna be chosen by America, but I chose you."

She said that she's okay with the decision. "I know I'm chosen," she added. "It's like whenever a boy is like, 'I don't wanna go out with you anymore.' And you're like, 'OK, but I know I'm loved."

Russell hinted then that she planned to continue forward with her musical ambitions. So far, she's sticking with her word on that. "Don't run from rejection or pain, and facing hard things ... " she said. "I sang 'The Climb' from Miley Cyrus, and I really think that she says it best. Sometimes you're gonna have to lose ... it's the climb. The climb is Abraham's promised land ... the promise is the climb with God."
