Tweens probably don’t know who Patsy Cline is, which is why Lilly Scott thinks she was voted off ‘American Idol’ Thursday night.

Her last song was Cline’s “I Fall to Pieces.”

Scott joined her three fellow rejects in a Friday conference call with reporters and says her underground fan base probably supported her in their hearts but didn’t actually vote.

Ousted singer Alex Lambert says he was just as surprised he didn’t make it into the Top 12, since his fellow contestants convinced him he was a lock. Lambert says he was so nervous that he couldn’t sing his best.

Katelyn Epperly says she’s going back to Des Moines, Iowa, to work because she’s “flat broke” — but will keep writing music.

And Todrick Hall says he’s campaigning to be on the TV show ‘Glee.’
