<p><span></span>At the conclusion of last night's <a href="http://dynamic.bauerpublishing.com/mt-search.fcgi?blog_id=2&tag=american idol&limit=20&IncludeBlogs=2"><em>American Idol</em></a>, <a href="http://dynamic.bauerpublishing.com/mt-search.fcgi?blog_id=2&tag=jeremy rosado&limit=20&IncludeBlogs=2"><strong>Jeremy Rosado</strong></a>'s dream of winning season 11 came to an end. <br />
Although the 19-year-old will no longer be taking the stage each week, he confides to Life & Style that there's one person he's thankful for backing him up: judge Jennifer Lopez.
"She's been behind me the entire way," Jeremy tells Life & Style. "I've been crazy blessed...to know that she believes in [me] so much. I'm truly grateful for God putting her in my life."
The Florida native isn't bitter about his elimination from the Top 13 contestants.
"I'm happy that I get to leave on a high note," he says. "My performance [on March 7] may not have been my best, but I don't think it was my worst. I'm so blessed to have had this crazy opportunity."
Jeremy even says Jennifer told him she wanted to keep him! But she wasn't able to this time around. Earlier this month, she saved him from elimination during the Top 24.
And the aspiring singer says it's not the last time America will hear from him.
"American Idol was the dream and is the dream for me," he tells Life & Style. "I'm going to take what the show has done for me and use it to start my career. I'm excited."
