Q: What do you think of this season of “American Idol” so far? Do you see any stars or diamonds in the rough coming from this group?

I think that’s a really important consideration when you’re talking about “Idol.” It was a fun experience for me, and it was really an experience where I got to find myself and my niche. So, I know that those guys are going through the same thing right now.
