It doesn’t sound like Heejun Han will be pulling an Erika Van Pelt. The season 11 finalist was eliminated from American Idol last night, but while Van Pelt has expressed disdain for the judges’ decision NOT to save her – saying in an interview that she feels shafted – Han spoke to reporters this morning and sounded at peace with the process. “It was way too early to use their card,” he said of the single veto permitted by the panel of three
