Kris Allen owes his career to Paula Abdul's clumsiness, Randy and Simon's normal urinal behavior

"We waited forever for the judges to get there. Finally I’m the next one to sing and I have to pee so bad. I’m really nervous and I have to pee, and I’m thinking, 'I’m going to pee on myself on national TV. That cannot happen.' I asked, 'Can I go to the bathroom?' I was told, 'No, there’s no time.' And then by the grace of God or something, Paula spilled her drink on herself and they had to take a break. I ran to the bathroom and Simon and Randy walk in. I was at the urinal and I don’t know if I was supposed to be in this bathroom. I was going in the closest one I could find. And they surround me at the urinals. Simon’s peeing next to me on the left and Randy’s on the right and they’re having this conversation. I was really nervous before and now I wasn’t nervous anymore. They pee like the rest of us." Kris Allen does not get stage fright, from part two of the L.A. Times four (!) part interview. [LA Times]

"[M]usic is not a huge deal in Arkansas, which is sad because there’s a lot of musical talent there." Further digging himself into a hole with the Arkansas music community. [LA Times]

"[It's] me and Anoop's friend, Wolfgang." Still managing to charm Michael Slezak, despite conducting an interview holding a small figurine of what appears to be a skunk. [EW]
