Bradford Dworak:
How big of an impact has American Idol had on your life?

Megan Joy: It made me realize I can do anything I want, and it has just been incredible.

BD: During your first audition, Simon said you were one of his favorites. Did you expect that initial response from him?

MJ: No, not at all. Coming from never making anything, I couldn't imagine making American Idol past Round 1. So each milestone—each audition I passed—I was just blown out of my mind.
