The 18-year-old Mississippi native was voted off the Fox reality series even after scoring high praise from the judges for her performances of 'Fortunate Son' and 'You Don't Have To Say You Love Me'.
Speaking to TV Guide, Laine explained why she was not overcome with emotion following her American Idol elimination.
"I don't cry much," Laine said, adding: "I felt like such a mean person when people were getting eliminated each week and I didn't cry."
Laine went on to reveal her celebrity crushes are mostly on professional athletes.
"[I like] Tim Tebow - he's amazing," Laine gushed. "I've got two celebrity crushes… because I don't think Tim Tebow would ever notice me. [I also like] the new player for the [Washington] Nationals, Bryce Harper. He's pretty darn cute."
The singer has said she is very grateful that American Idol has helped her develop a loyal group of country music fans.
American Idol continues tonight (May 9) at 8/7c on Fox.
