Matt sits down with Oprah.com's Screening Room to chat about his rise to fame.
Screening Room: What has the American Idol experience meant to you?
Matt Giraud: You know, this obviously meant a lot to me. It really sent me off on where I'm supposed to go, I think. I always wanted to be a singer, I always knew I wanted to be a performer on this type of scale—I just never really knew how I would get there. So, it was really cool that Idol could give me that chance to get up on the big stage and really show a lot of people what I can do.
