Personal Quote:

I had previous experience, several other people last year had previous experience, and it just means that I pretty much worked my whole life to get where I'm at. It's American Idol, it's the American Dream -- of course everyone wants to follow it.


Best friends on Idol were Michael Johns and David Cook. See more »
