SR: What do you want to prove?
AD: I'd like to show people that I'm a contemporary singer and artist. I got to do that a little bit, but throughout the show I was still finding myself. I'm sort of looking forward to doing a couple of the songs I did on the show but sort of doing them either a little differently or doing them better. Quite frankly, I would watch back some of my performances and just think that I could have sung them better or just performed better. So I'm looking forward to doing that on a nightly basis. You know, this is, like I said, this is a proving ground. So if I can do that, if I can get that practice and people see me, then that's really the goal for me.
