The television host and pop star explained that their meeting took place shortly after she and the other two final contestants were revealed during the first season of American Idol.

She repeated that "everyone was so rude" remembering individuals for honorary pathway and at the show itself. "You came up to me, ran up to me out of nowhere, and said 'Oh my gosh, I'm really rooting for you'".
