    Now that is a scary thought!

  2. Aww, Matt…Damn, he better get a record contract soon. I love this dude.

  3. I loved that interview. I loved that he still doesn’t take himself too seriously but wants to make music. To me that’s all it’s about. I have to think that Matt understands.

  4. This guy also wrote with Allison. She just tweeted an hour ago:

    Allison4Realzzz @dannyboythepipe @ImMattGiraud is crazy good.. Kick his ass for me.. Miss you both..

    I doubt there’s a label connection there but it’s interesting!

  5. Geez…she did not do a very good job interviewing!!! Matt GirARD? “I. Don’t. Want. To. Be.” by Gavin Degraw? Oh well. Great exposure for Matt — congrats! Good luck with the new show!

  6. Matt GirARD?

    I thought that was how it was pronounced, until I heard Matt say it correctly during this interview. Ooops.

    I’m glad that Matt got this interview, and hope that his career can move forward with a contract.

  7. I am sure he will contract to put an album out. Maybe it won’t be a major label right off, but I am convinced that whatever he does put out will take off pretty big, and in time I am betting a Major Label to snatch him up quickly :) He is gonna work hard to get himself out there, that’s pretty obvious, and I admire his drive. He will be snatched up, but until then he seems to be working hard to make it all happen. I always new there was something special about Matt!

  8. I think Matt has so much talent, and I think he will work hard and do well. I’d love to see him in his own show, I hope he makes it out to Seattle before too long.

    I actually take Matt very seriously as an artist , so this doesn’t bother me much. As a real artist, I’m sure he’ll be able to dig deep & they’ll be able to write quality songs together.

  10. I love you Matt, I’m glad you’re working on an album but please so=top saying your with Peter Jennings, he’s been dead for a few years now.

  11. I am loving the post-Idol Matt, and hope he keeps performing his heart out and making great music. He sure has used Twitter to help grow his fans, particularly with the Bubble Tweets and links to pictures and videos. His # of followers has actually gone up a couple thousand since the end of the tour. I find it interesting that Matt got this interview even though he doesn’t really have any news. Wonder who helped him get it?

  12. Matt was great in concert. I wish him well.

    What happened to his mole? Did make up cover it? Or did he get it removed?

  13. When I was looking for Adam’s pre-order on Amazon I was amazed to see 2 CDs for Matt popup for sale. Pretty long segment for him, was this national?

  14. This was broadcast nationally, although you have to have access through your cable or internet provider to see it live. I am not sure how many people have access to this, but now the video is posted on the ABC website, so not too shabby. Which makes me wonder why he got this interview now? It seems someone powerful is helping him to stay in the public eye.

  15. #signmattgiraud! Hehe, thanks for the Matt news. Looking forward to this yobi.tv thing.

  16. Nice knowing ya Matt. He deserves better but if a songwriter for Ashley Tisdale is the best he can dig up, his post AI career doesn’t look very bright. He and Anoop will probably flounder around for another year or so before falling totally off the radar when nothing pans out.

  17. Matt is a very talented young man and so deserves to be signed! He has such a soulful voice and blew me away when I saw him live in Cleveland! I still think he should have sung Michael Jackson’s Who’s Loving You on tour because he tore that song up on Idol!!! I think it was one of his best performances on the show but he performed it before the final 13 so I don’t know if it got forgotten about or what but I have it in my bookmarks on my computer just to have easy access to it. Loved this performance! If you haven’t seen it look it up – it’s worth watching, Believe me!!!

  18. Nice knowing ya Matt. He deserves better but if a songwriter for Ashley Tisdale is the best he can dig up, his post AI career doesn’t look very bright. He and Anoop will probably flounder around for another year or so before falling totally off the radar when nothing pans out.

    Well guess we should probably tell Allison’s record label the same thing because she is working with the very same writer.

    I cant wait for Matt’s CD! I know it will be amazing because Matt is an incredible musician. Loved the interview and love Matt! There will only be great things in store for Matt.

  19. Yay for Matt! I’m so excited for him. I hope only great things for him.

  20. So great to see Matt and hear he’s working on new music. I love this guy. I think he’s insanely talented and am so looking forward to his first post-tour CD. He should’ve been signed long ago….falling off the radar…..nah, I don’t buy that for a minute….Matt will definitely make it in the music industry.

  21. Awww. So nice to see Matt. I really hope he does well after Idol.
    He is so talented.
    I think a label is already interested in him right? How did he book this writing sessions with those people all by himself? I am pretty sure he will get signed sooner or later.
    Can’t wait for his music, he is a great singer and amazing performer with that piano. I think that with the right material Matt could be very successful. Here’s hoping.

  22. YAY! MATT!!! I freaking LOVE this guy! So glad that he seems to be taking the right steps forward. He really does deserve it, and I get the feeling that he won’t allow himself to just fade off. He’s working pretty hard right now and is being rewarded by an increase of fans and great exposure.

    I agree that, record deal or no, Matt seems to be making a lot of good moves (private gig for PRISCILLA PRESELY, couple of big gigs lined up like performing at a tigers game, solo concert in Jan., and now this major interview) I hope this means that he has help from someone big, or maybe that he’s close to being signed, but if not I have no doubt that Matt will still put out good music.

    GOOD LUCK to you Matt! Wishing you the very best and can’t wait to get your CD!

  23. I agree that, record deal or no, Matt seems to be making a lot of good moves (private gig for PRISCILLA PRESELY, couple of big gigs lined up like performing at a tigers game, solo concert in Jan., and now this major interview)

    He’s making decent moves as far as booking gigs that will make him money but none of those have anything to do with his future in the record industry. Performing for Pricilla Presley is nice but hardly a major career move, other than I’m sure he got paid well. If he can sustain enough private gigs and club gigs to build a career then, as Chris Sligh said, he’s a success. I just don’t see him breaking out as any sort of A or B list star.

  24. Yay, my favorite!

    I think Matt has the talent and work ethic to do well in the music industry. I, like others have mentioned, suspect there is someone who is bolstering his career behind the scenes. I won’t speculate as to whom that might be, but his name staying out there is a good thing, regardless.

    And as for the writers he was working with, they may have worked with some “interesting” artists, but so has Kara DioGuardi. She’s had her share of misses, but some pretty major hits, too. You just never know what people are capable of with the right inspiration…..

  25. YAY!! So glad to see an interview with Matt posted! He is the #1 talent to come out of American Idol for me, in all 8 seasons! So I am thrilled to follow his post-Idol career and see it blossom. I know he’s going to make great music, whether he’s signed with a label or not. But I definitely think he deserves a major record deal. His talent is undeniable…cannot wait to one day buy his album! #SignMattGiraud

  26. I’m really rooting for Matt. He seems to be realistic, but still trying to put himself out there as much as possible. He’s a natural entertainer. If he tours Michigan, I’ll be there.

    I think Matt has the tools to be a very good composer / songwriter. I don’t think I can see a bubble tweet without his little jingle running through my head. “It’s a bubble tweet with Matt G, featuring…”

    It’s amusing that after his professed love of all things Disney, he ends up writing with a Disney-pop dude.
