I’m sure they come up to you, I mean, people still talk to me about, ‘God, that night that Jennifer Hudson was eliminated.’

I go, ‘I know.’ 

And I remember interviewing you, after.

I was on ‘Entertainment Tonight,’ and I said to you, ‘You know, I have a feeling some amazing things are going to happen to you.’

Remember, I said, ‘Sometimes the people that need to win, win, and the people that don’t need to win end up winning big time.
