A couple of funny and very frank radio interviews from Michael Johns in Atlanta, GA. He’s there this weekend to perform a pre-race show and National Anthem before the Pep Boys 500 Race.
The most interesting bits to come out of the interviews are that American Idol producers, a few days ago, asked him to mentor contestants during Season 8 Hollywood Week. So, Michael may be back on our TVs come February. Also, he mentioned that Brooke White is recording in Nashville!

- He talks about his birthday party and says Brooke White is “My favorite person in the world.” He does an impersonation of David Archuleta that’s pretty funny.
- He thinks David Cook was “the right winner.”
- About the controversy over the song he “stole” from the band Film, Michael says he worked it out with the band’s lead songwriter. Only one guy in the band was pissed, but then eventually he came around too.
- The hosts tell an interesting story about how Paula used to call into the show weekly during the show, and couldn’t keep her thoughts together. Paula Abdul was Michael’s favorite judge.
