Chris Sligh: Post American Idol

Here's a great article on Chris Sligh with lots of new information from an interview he did with a local paper there in Greenville. Some interesting stuff, here's a clip:
Sligh said he knew his days were numbered when judges Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell panned his performance Tuesday of The Police's "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic," citing problems with being out of tempo with the song.

Before Wednesday's results show, Sligh said he bet fellow "Idol" contesant Phil Stacy $50 that it would be himself who was to be eliminated (Stacy and contestant Haley Scarnato were announced as two of the bottom three vote-getters along with Sligh).

"I just had this feeling in my heart that I was going home," Sligh said.

"I told Phil that I was going home, and he was like, 'No way, there's no way you're going home before me.'"

After the results, Sligh reprised "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" for the customary farewell performance. As he sang, he hugged the remaining contestants and interrupted the song to tell Stacy, "You owe me 50 bucks."

Sligh said he didn't realize the show -- which had run several minutes past its 30-minute time slot -- was still on the air and that his comment would be heard by millions watching at home.

The week before, eliminated contestant Stephanie Edwards' performance was cut off because of time constraints.
