Absolutely. I was really proud of my performance.
No, I wasn’t. I was prepared for it to happen sooner or later. I woke up that morning knowing that might be my night. I just had a feeling. I don’t know how I knew. I can’t explain it.
I was very surprised. I didn't think it was going to be such a big deal.
I really didn’t understand that it was such a big deal. I didn’t mean for it come across that I didn’t care about the show. I just didn’t care that Simon didn’t like that specific song.
He came up to me after the show and we talked. I love Simon. I have nothing but love and appreciation for him. I owe it to him–as far as I got in the competition.
I was excited and happy and trying to make the best out of it. You can either cry about it or laugh about it – and I would rather laugh.
The day I was sick and the days surrounding it were some of the worst days I’ve ever experienced. I was miserable and so sad. But missing my son was horrible.
I did. He’s not a big phone talker. He’s too busy for that.
It’s allowed but it didn’t work out in our situation.
I am pretty close to all of them, but Alison was my roomie. So I felt extra close to her. She kinda reminds me of myself when I was her age. She’s hilarious and fun. She’s a beautiful girl inside and out.
There actually wasn’t. Everyone was so nice and gets along so well.
My sleeve is a castle and it has my fairy tale on stained glass on it. There’s me and my prince – and I don’t know who that is. There's my mom as a fairy godmother, my brother as a wizard and my son as a prince. It’s taken a year to get to this point and it’s still not done.
Parts of it were really painful when it was being put on, but other parts were bearable.
It was really hard. I could never make it into anything and it really took a toll on my self-esteem.
My mom sings and I’ve grown up with music in my life always. My mom spends a lot of time in the car for her job, so we were just always singing.
In some aspects yes. As far as stage presence and knowing how to hold a mike. Technical things. I think it also worked for me. My first time on stage was American Idol. It was kinda of a crazy story.
My friends and family sort of pushed me into it, I didn’t want to. I didn’t think I would make it. But they said I had try to at least once, so I did.
Yes, I got him about two hours ago. I feel wonderful. I’m so excited to spend the day with him. I got home late last night.
I’m going to go on tour and hopefully after that I’m going to make an album. Maybe do some modeling or acting. It’ll all be good things. [Calls out to son] Yes, baby! Gotta go…
