'American Idol' Castoff Emily Piriz: I Worked With Amazing People

Posted: Updated:

Even though Emily Piriz has been eliminated from American Idol, she still plans to give music a go. In fact, she and fellow finalist Jena Irene are planning to move out to Los Angeles together this summer -- once they both graduate from high school.

"I'm a senior," Piriz told zap2it.com backstage. "I'm just gonna go back home ... go back to school and graduate. Me and Jena were actually talking that we want to move out to [Hollywood] together this summer."

The original plan was to go to the University of North Florida and room with her high school friend, so having the whole "Idol" experience is like living in another reality. "It's weird going through that whole college search," and then not going, she says, "but it's worth it to be here. It's like an alternate universe. You have two things planned out in your life. You're going to go to college or be on TV and be a rock star."

Emily Piriz joins Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone on Good Day L.A.
