Ousted 'Idol' hopeful admits she has one regret

When Thia Megia left the “American Idol” stage last week, she did so with one regret. If the hopeful had it all to do over again, she’d show the judges and the audience her upbeat side.

“I probably would (change something),” Megia revealed during a Tuesday morning visit to TODAY. “I mean, I’m not just this one genre singer that can only sing ballads, so I wish I could have gotten the chance to actually show more different sides of me musically.”

Other than the wish for that lone do-over, Megia wouldn’t change a thing, and neither would her fellow eliminated “Idol” contestant, Naima Adedapo — not even the parts of the competition that were out of their control. In fact, when both singers were asked about the recent use of the game’s only save on crooner Casey Abrams, they didn’t hesitate to show their support for that move.

“You know, I think everything happens for a reason, but I really feel that they used the save correctly, actually,” Adedapo said, as Megia nodded. “I think Casey deserved it.”
