"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]
