Booted American Idol Amber Holcomb: I Want To Start Acting, Modeling

Amber Holcomb got the boot on “American Idol” on Thursday, but the singer is already planning her future endeavors.

“I most definitely [want to act],” Amber told AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman after the show. “I want to be in movies, TV shows, runway [modeling], all of it.”

The 18-year-old singer became very emotional onstage after learning she’d been cut from the show’s Final 4, but the bad news was tempered with a pep talk from the judges.

Amber also delivered a message to the fans who have supported her throughout her “Idol” journey.

“Thank you so much, you guys! The top 4 — that is amazing,” she said, when she’d say to the viewers who have voted for her. “[This is] the biggest accomplishment so far in my life. So, thank you guys.”

“American Idol” continues with the Top 3 (Angie Miller, Candice Glover and Kree Harrison) competing for the title on Wednesday at 8/7c on Fox.
