In a brief interview with co-hosts Kelly Ripa and  Michael Strahan after the song, Joey Cook talked about earning money on the streets of New Orleans, and how she had to take precautions on show nights during American Idol because she suffers from epilepsy.

“Any performances I was in the audience for that had strobe lights, I had to wear these big glasses, and I would just keep my eyes closed the whole time, and kind of just like Ray Charles to the music.”

Joey hopes to start working on a “big girl” album soon in a real studio, using material she recorded on her iPhone as the base for the record.
