The 'American Idol' farewell season is down to 6 remaining contestants after singers Avalon Young and Lee Jean were eliminated. Reality Wanted talked to the young contestants about their experience on the final season.


Reality Wanted: Avalon, you were in the bottom 3 last week as well, what was it like for you singing for the save in the bottom 3 again?


Avalon: It was cool because this week, I mean, it sounds unfortunate, but it was hopeless.  I was familiar with the feeling, so for me to be standing there, of course, it was crappy.  I mean, the worst part was just to know that not enough people out there voted.  I think that was the bad feeling.  The bad feeling wasn't going home.


Reality Wanted: Being part of the farewell season, what was it like singing with past contestants Ruben Studdard and Chris Daughtry?


Lee: Singing with Chris Daughtry, I couldn't even tell you how amazing that was.  He's such a down-to-earth person...I feel like he really pushed me to better myself, especially in that performance.


Avalon: Yeah, same goes for Ruben.  It was kind of just like they give you a big brother vibe, and it's cool to be surrounded by people who just want you to do well.  That was the funniest part about American Idol for me was that it was a competition, but everybody wanted to see you do your best.


Reality Wanted: What has been your favorite experience being on the show?


Avalaon: I would have to say just doing stupid things and having fun with everyone. There's nothing better than being surrounded by people who get you...It's an experience you can't put into words, so to have people go through it with you...you always understand each other...So, that's probably the best part about the show.


Lee: Yeah, just being here and being surrounded by all of these people...there's been such a strong bond between all of us...Lee Exactly, there's just some really, really down-to-earth people, and I think I'm just going to miss that the most.


Avalon says, "The worst feeling was having to leave my friends.  I think that was the biggest heart-sinking feeling."


This week the top 6 remaining contestants sing and who will go home? Reality Wanted will have the interview with the next eliminated singer.
