Why Do You Want To Be An AMERICAN IDOL
I truly believe that I understand what it entails to be an AMERICAN IDOL. For the past few years, I have focused, prepared and dedicated a great portion of my life to becoming a person who fits all of the criteria I defined as being an AMERICAN IDOL. It has been my dream since I was a little girl and who's to say that little girls' dreams don't come true?
Most Embarrassing Moment
I had on four inch stiletto heeled boots while walking down stairs. Of course my heel got caught, and down I fall about fifteen stairs…ALL the way to the bottom and onto the floor.
Favorite Judge? Why?
I favored Paula because she is an entertainer and has a personal understanding of what performing is all about.
Least Favorite Judge? Why?
I really did not dislike any of them. After learning more about them, it was revealed that they all are admirable people who I admire for their knowledge and their accomplishments.
Anything You Would Not Change To Become The American Idol
I would not change the style of my voice, meaning voice quality, etc.
What are you going to call your first CD?
