One on One with Lil Rounds, American Idol Season 8 Finalist.
Lil Rounds American Idol contestant, made her way from Memphis auditions all the way to the top seven. Starting off with Stevie Wondersâ€™ â€śAll I doâ€ť and ending with Chaka Khansâ€™ â€śIâ€™m Every Womanâ€ť Lil brought lots of energy and smiles to the competition. I had a chance to sit down one on one with her and you can check out the interview below.
First off Iâ€™d like to ask you how the tours been going?
The tours been really great, were coming towards the end now but itâ€™s been so much fun and itâ€™s just been great, really great.
What has your favorite part of touring been?
Seeing all the different cities and culturesâ€¦and having all the fans come out to every show. The fans have definitely been my favorite.
Is it hard being on tour and being away from your family and friends?
Well weâ€™ve been using Skype a lot [online video program] to see and speak with each other. You know just to see each otherâ€™s faces and laugh and talk with each other. My family came out to a few shows but the hardest part is definitely not being able to be with them every day.
How has it been adjusting to â€śfame?â€ť
Itâ€™s been really weird for me. Iâ€™m not used to people wanting to give me a hug or high-five, or autograph a picture of myself for them. Itâ€™s been fun, you know then all of a sudden my babies bring me back to reality â€śmommy mommyâ€ť you know it reminds me of who I really amâ€¦a mother.
Do you have anything in the works now that the tour is just about up?
Well I have some meetings coming up with some record labels, so Iâ€™m hoping to sign on with one of them. Besides that Iâ€™m working on getting a single out in the near future.
Before we end this is there something you want to say to your fans or anything you would like to touch on?
Well I want to say that everyone has just been so supportive. I want to thank all my fans for supporting me and believing in my dream. â€śKeep Lil Rounds in your minds because there is definitely more to come.â€ť
Make sure to come back tomorrow for another one on one session with an American Idol finalist.
