“When they said there is an extra round I was like, great, I thought we made it. I thought we were done. But then they said we’re going to play at the House of Blues live show with a live audience I just got all kinds of excited and was thrilled to play with live people because in Hollywood week it’s you know, you’ve got your parent, your moms and dad proud, you know, and then the contestants over here and then the judges in their splendor, you know, right in front of you and their table and you’re just singing to them and lights and cameras, the stage is huge, you’re all by yourself, but the House of Blues, they had, you know a live audience, real people we were singing to and entertaining and I think that’s where a lot of us felt at home.”
