Third times also the charm for Tennessee girl Janelle Arthur, who says her biggest fear is losing her voice. "I am trying to be careful, save my voice, Vanderbilt has taught me to save my voice and do what I need to do to stay in this competition" says Arthur.
The contestants are resting as much as they can but they say the entire process is very overwhelming. "The hair, make up, photos, autographs, talking to people like you. It's weird because I'm just Devin" says Devin Velez. Amber Holcomb agrees with Devin and say it's hard to stay focused sometimes. "My mind is mumbo jumbo, like scrambled eggs! I am excited but thinking of what I gotta work on next" says Holcomb.
The contestants appreciate all the judges but you may be surprised to hear whose feedback means the most! " I love all of them but I feel like Nicki is the person you can go to if you want honesty. She is gonna tell you what you need to hear not what want to hear. I am glad she is on the panel" says Burnell Taylor.
"She knows what it's like to be a star today. She knows what it's like tob e current, what it takes and how hard it is and she is preparing you for that" says Candace.
Still yet, there is only one judge that seems to be stealing everyone's heart! "I love Keith, he's gorgeous" says Amber. "Keith is cute. Can't focus on him when singing or you will get throw off" says Candace

June 20, 2013 08:10 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A new study of domestic violence in Tennessee last year found women were nearly two times more likely to be victimized than men and children were the victims in 16 percent of all family violence cases.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation put out a report this week analyzing crime statistics from law enforcement agencies across the state. Their findings show that nearly 15 percent of all crimes reported were domestic in nature.
The study looked at the relationships between victims and offenders as well as the influence of drugs and alcohol on family violence. The study found that more than 17 percent of family violence involves drugs or alcohol, with alcohol being the most common.
