“The interesting thing about being on tour with them was that I saw such a cross-section of different ages and races and genres. It was a very broad audience, and that’s sort of similar to what I see at my shows. I see kids. I see their parents. I see their parent’s parents. With (Queen) it really came down to me just having to prove it, that I had a right to be there, which is good. I like a challenge. It’s easy to write off somebody from a TV show talent competition but…I think we were successful.”
