New York, NY - March 21, 2007 - American Idol fanatic Ashley Ferl tells Inside Edition she began crying hysterically because she was overwhelmed at Tuesday night's taping of the popular reality show saying, "Just being able to be there and everything about it...it was so unbelievable."

Ferl, a 13-year-old Riverside, California resident, says she received her front row seats after Idol producers saw her emotional response during the contestant's dress rehearsal.

"I love his [Sanjaya] voice and his hair," the middle school student sporting a t-shirt with a picture of Sanjaya tells Inside Edition.

Ferl's mother Stacy tells Inside Edition her daughter has not stopped crying since the show taping.

"She was actually crying this morning again just so excited about all the media attention and talking about what happened last night on the show."

Ferl, who is also an aspiring singer, says she has attended all three idol concert tours and can't get enough.
