Then he picked up a guitar and played the piano and I knew I was lost. I knew the moment he started hugging that guitar on stage that I would be to far gone. Sure he dropped out of college and married his college sweetheart all at the age of 23; he also won American Idol.
Did I mention how cute he is? Oh I didn't. Well now I have. And if only for that pretty face, he deserves to be manjoyment. But we all know he's so much more than that.
On What He Felt When His Name was Announced"I was numb, I was totally numb, I had no idea what to feel ... Adam deserves this as much as I do. It was crazy, I never thought this would happen. I told him, I was like, ‘You deserve this,’ and he was like, ‘No, you deserve this.’ We love each other, man. We’ve been friends ever since the Top 36."
On His Wife's Support"My wife has been the support. I seriously almost gave up a lot, and she was just like you have to keep going. She believed in me more than I believed in myself. She is just great."
On Just How Shocked He Is"I’m shocked... really shocked ... I felt shocked almost every week that I made it, and to be the American Idol, I’m completely shocked."
On Not Getting As Much Screen Time in the Start"I think [the lack of screen time] went through my head a little bit, but I was just trying to stay grounded and hopefully that doesn’t matter ... I have to go out there and do my thing on live TV. I think that I showed myself this past week and I think people liked it."
On Not Worrying About His Looks"I don't like to worry about my look so much ... If I had my choice, I'd just wear this."
On Not Craving the Spotlight"I love being the guy who's kind of in the background"
On What He Wanted to Do Before Singing"I think it was because I always wanted to travel and I felt that if you are a taxi driver you get to travel a lot ... And then I grew up and [realized] they only get to travel in one city."
On Being Really Laid Back"I'm that laid-back guy. I stick my head behind everyone else and every once in a while peek out and say, 'Hello!'"
On His Voice"You don't have to have the huge voice. Obviously, you don't have to have, like a swagger, about you because I don't feel like I do ... I'm confident in what I know how to do, but it's very subtle."
On Winning American Idol"Seriously, it was probably the best moment of the year for me, because I just felt like it was the exhale of everything."
