American Idol continues tonight (Fox, 8 pm et/pt), as the top seven attempt to survive another week in the competition. For singer Jena Irene, part of her Idol journey has helped her gain a ton of confidence as a performer.
“My confidence level, I mean it’s grown,” said Irene. “It started off very small, but after over the months of preparing and getting all the advice that I’ve gotten and taking everything into consideration, I think my confidence and then my originality, I hope that people like what I come up with in the next few weeks. But, yeah, it’s been fun.”
For CJ Harris, American Idol has also helped him hone his craft. Although he’s a natural musician and has an authentic, down home country/blues voice, Harris’ talent did need a bit of nurturing.
“I knew that I could do something with music,” said Harris. “I was just really waiting on the help, man. I couldn’t afford to have the voice lessons and the guitar lessons and things like that I really wanted to get help on. Now that I’m here and I get help on interviews, on how to do an interview, how to breathe, how to do this and that, and it’s just helped me all around as a musician, from my stage performance to a lot of things. I’m just excited.”
