Personal Quote:

[on whether The Gong Show (1976) was in direct contrast of American Idol (2002)]: That's what I've been told. I did an interview show on Fox and the host asked me if I watched American Idol, and I told him no, and he just refused to believe me. He kept repeating the question over and over. Maybe it's out of jealousy because I think they did make American Idol infinitely better than The Gong Show. See more »
