'A.I.' said goodbye to Lisa Tucker Wednesday night and we're told that the 16-year-old knew it was coming. Tucker's mom hung out at the studio all day Wednesday for moral support, knowing how hard it was on her daughter.
Tucker's mom told friends that Lisa was prepared to say "goodbye," taking comfort in the fact that 'Idol' had become a building block for a promising career. Mom also told friends that her daughter had received so many calls from networks and theatrical companies, it was sick. Disney is rumored to be one of them!
