LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Megan Joy says she was just being goofy and showing her love of birds when she flapped her way across the "American Idol" stage.

Joy, who was eliminated from the TV show Wednesday, told a teleconference that fellow low-ranking contestants Anoop Desai and Allison Iraheta has promised to make birdlike "caw" sounds for her if she were voted off.

The tattooed, 23-year-old single mother from Sandy, Utah, said Thursday that she plans to add to her body art with an ink version of the good luck ring she wore for the singing contest.

Joy received the fewest number of viewer votes for her version of Bob Marley's "Turn Your Lights Down Low." Eight finalists remain in the competition.
