East Texan back home from American Idol

WHITE OAK, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas girl is back home after going three rounds deep into the American Idol competition in Hollywood.

White Oak High School senior Brittany Stone, 18, is back home after being cut in the third round of the American Idol competition in Hollywood.

Although proud of her effort, she admits it was nerve-racking standing in front of Simon Cowell.

"I remember my first audition with Simon I could not even remember my name," said Stone. "I was like, 'When is this going to be over?' and I remember Simon telling me I reminded him of a little girl shivering in a corner and I've always agreed with everything he's said and I came back and was a lot more confident and it was a little easier after the first time."

Stone says she is hoping to go to college to study music and communications.
