Q&A with American Idol's Allison Iraheta
SR: You really have such great stage presence. You really own it!
AI: Thanks. Yeah. You know, I like to have fun up there, and rather than think about "Oh my god, what are the judges going to say?" and "What’s going to go on when no one’s around me?" and all that, I love enjoying the song and connecting with it. Which is why I totally blank out after I’m done singing, and I’m like, "What just happened up there?" It’s pretty funny, but I really just get into it.
