Paige Miles is the first to admit she never got to have her “moment” as she advanced to an  eleventh-place run on American Idol‘s ninth season. But even though she missed the show’s 2010 summer tour by just one slot — alas, the tour only includes the season’s top 10 finishers — she’s maintaining a positive attitude. Paige dropped by the Idolatry studios earlier this week to dish her mostly untelevised Hollywood Week shenanigans (as part of the “Bad Romance” showdown on group day), her week-long battle to embrace her final song choice (Phil Collins’ “Against All Odds”), and Simon’s parting shot that referred to her talent in the past tense. (Ouch!) Press play on the embedded Idolatry player, then share your thoughts in the comments section. And to get all my Idol news and commentary, follow me on Twitter @EWMichaelSlezak.
