BD: What was your favorite performance on the show?

MJ: Probably "Walking After Midnight" because I was so sick and I didn't think I would be able to hit a single note and it worked out nicely.

BD: Were there any genres you wish you got to do on the show before being eliminated?

MJ: Yeah, [the contestants] did jazz standards, [but] I got cut. That would have been amazing to be a part of.

BD: If you got to perform during Jazz Standards Week, what would you have sang?
MJ: I don't know—maybe some Frank [Sinatra]. ... There are so many to choose from—I just wish I had the opportunity.
