Check out interview from backstage after the American Idol 13 Top 7 performance Show
Jessica Meuse talks about receiving harsh criticism HERE. Harry’s criticism of her trio with Dexter and CJ stung especially hard.
Jena Irene talks about fighting to sing “Creep” earlier HERE. She continued to fight, because the lyrics were deemed too “blunt.”
Kings of Leon had never cleared a song for any American reality TV Shows (wait..is that true?) according to Caleb Johnson HERE. He was happy to pick two songs that turned into big moments for Jena and CJ.
Alex Preston talks Ed Sheeran. He explains why the “coffee house style” suits him HERE.
CJ Harris on having his son in the audience. “My son lit up my world today” He almost sang “Soul Man” by Sam and Dave. The other contestants urged him to choose John Mayer. Also, he explains how the trio (which received harsh criticism from the panel) could have been handed a better song, and used more rehearsal time. Watch HERE.
Happy Birthday to Sam Woolf! He’s 18 today. The remaining contestants want to go to Six Flags on Easter – Watch HERE.
Watch Caleb Johnson and Jena Irene re-enact their big “Prom-Posal”. They are seriously considering attending Jena’s Senior Prom back in Michigan together!
