Kree Harrison finished second to Candice Glover in last week's American Idol finale, but she's not letting her also-ran status bring her down. She told MTV, she's just excited about all the opportunities the show is bringing her.
"There's so many Idol
s that I look up to: Carrie [Underwood], Kelly [Clarkson], Kellie Pickler's one of my best friends," she said. "[Pickler] is such a strong woman and her work ethic is incredible. So for me, there's so many. It doesn't matter where you place. Jennifer Hudson! I mean, come on!"
Kree will join Idol
pal Pickler for a gig with season 12 judge Keith Urban
at the Grand Ol' Opry on June 4. Unlike some contestants
, Kree has nothing but nice things to say about her Idol
"All four judges always gave me great advice, and Keith more than anything," she said. "I feel like I found a happy medium through his constructive criticism. I feel like he's really helped me with that, as well as the other three judges. For some many, different reasons I love each one of them."(Photo from FameFlynet)
