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’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.
