What was it like singing with your dad playing guitar on the stage and you singing background vocals with your parents when you were younger? I mean, they've, my parents, have basically just taught me the rules of the stage and everything since I was eight, and the first big thing I ever got to do was on my ninth birthday.Do you think that helped or hindered how far you got in the competition? I believe their intentions for it throughout this whole process were simply to push me along further, because it was apparent they liked to get me to where I could be at the top of my game and to get me a little fired up inside, so then I come out with something that they really, really really didn't expect of what not. It's up to America, but as far as whether it hindered anything, I got to the Top 3, so that's quite alright.Would you have done anything differently if you were given the opportunity to go back?That day, I got to play at an international tattoo festival.It was huge and I sang "Blue" actually, from Le Ann Rimes, because that's when I figured out I could yodel when I heard Le Ann doing it and I was captivated by it, so I did it... I think I was overwhelmed and probably cried afterwards, but it was just an amazing feeling.
