In one of American Idol's most poignant exits, Gina Glocksen, 22, bid adieu to the country and her fellow-competitors last night, singing the song that got her voted out, "Smile."
The "rocker girl" from the Chicago suburb of Naperville, Ill., changed the words: "When there are clouds in the sky I'll get by." But she almost didn't. "It's hard," she sobbed, and many of her new Idol friends added their tears.
For the second straight week, Phil Stacey and Haley Scarnato (if her skirt were any shorter, it would be called "panties") survived, after landing in the bottom three.
