As you got the results of the judges' Wild Card decisions, you were very emotional. What was going through your mind at that moment?
Just at the end, all I was thinking was, "This is it," you know? Because I've been working hard for this... That was crazy. I felt like -- because I've been working way too hard for this, and it was like, When I finally got that yes, it was just relief. Everything paid off. It was crazy with everyone going away. It was bad.
Were you prepared to get a "no"? It was very close.
I was kind of preparing for a "no" because my song choice -- I was happy with my song choice, but the key I did it in was a little shaky. I messed up. I took a risk at that.
Where do you think it went wrong?
Because I'm really known as a falsetto singer, which I love, not many people, not a lot of people like that, so I tried to put some low into it. But the key in that first whole verse did not do good for me at all. So I had to take a risk of that.
What kind of music can we expect from you going forward?
R&B soul, I'm going to stick to that as much as I can. It's still going to be R&B soul, I'm still going to do falsetto, I'm not going to give that up. That's who I am. Even if you don't like it, that's who I am. That's how I sing.
Why do you think the falsetto is so polarizing?
It's just people's opinion, like some people don't rapper voices or genres of music. Some people just don't like it, and I understand that.
