Video: Chatting with 'American Idol' finalist Thia Megia

After Thursday night's show, Pop & Hiss caught up with the 13 chosen "American Idol" finalists, who were immediately (and we mean immediately) thrust into the spotlight of flashing lights and eager reporters looking for a sound bite from America's new darlings at an after party thrown in their honor Thursday night at the Grove. 

Check out video interviews of them all. We chat about favorite artists, inspirations, who they'd love to cover if given the chance (Black Keys! Esperanza Spalding! Beyonce! Usher?) and if they think they have what it takes to walk away with the crown this year.

I really like this young lady 'Thia Megia'.She is well mannered and so talented!! It is hard to believe she is only 15-by her 'mad' vocal skills. She owns a 'beautiful'voice and controls it well to get the desired effect. I hope she will stay on the show (season 10) for a long time, so we can hear more of her--

I just love Thia..she's so charming and her face onscreen is irrestible. my family loves her as well...we will support you all the way Thia...
