You know, it just has been such a journey watching you guys from the very beginning. I don’t know I just feel like to lose anyone of you tonight you know is heart breaking for me and I’m sure most of America because you all have your fans out there. This is a big moment, I mean I’ve never felt this way I think in watching the show for many years, so connected to each one of you.
Um, I’m sure America is feeling the same way right now. you know this is just you know, a big moment in their lives but also for the show to have three such talented contestants at this point is like….really it’s a toss up, it’s crazy. Um, big moment.
