My Timmy talked to Entertainment Tonight
about being voted off American Idol.
I love this kid’s positive attitude:
“It was just such a blessing to be here,” Tim Urban says. “I couldn’t help but smile even when the judges were criticizing me. I didn’t want to get depressed about the comments.”
“The last couple of weeks, I showed America the kind of artist I would be. A couple of weeks, I was groping around. I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do. I finally settled down and let myself be myself on the show. Looking back, I really feel I did what I wanted to do.”
Tim certainly made a lot of fans while on the show thanks to his improve performances but mostly because he is so darn likable and cute! He says he would love to act and he does seem like a natural for a guest spot of Glee.
“I would love to pursue music,” he says. “I hope that door opens up, but I have always had a desire to act — to be in that side of the entertainment industry, as well. I am waiting to see what happens.”
When it comes to his nickname, “Teflon Tim,” because he was in the bottom two so many times but still made it to the Top Seven, plus the fact that the Web site votefortheworst.com featured him so many weeks, he takes the high road.
“I am not excited that I was on their Web site,” he admits. “I don’t think it is anything that anybody should be proud of. I was working hard to get off of it.”
