Even though Steven Tyler said she “found her stride” this week, and Jennifer Lopez loved her rendition of Jimi Hendrix’s “Bold as Love,” rocker Elise Testone was eliminated this week on American Idol.

The good news is Testone found her voice through the American Idol process, and she exceeded expectations by making it to the top 6 (Hollie Cavanagh and Skylar Laine rounded out the bottom three).

“It became a little more clear that rock and roll is better for me,” says Testone, who sang Led Zeppelin’s ‘Whole Lotta Love’ as her exit song.  “It’s definitely my wheelhouse.  So that was a great thing for me to figure out.  It was always hard for me to choose because I love so many genres, and I love so much music.  So that helped a lot.”
