    • Garrett (on who he thinks will win "American Idol" Season 7): I don't know. Every single person in this competition brings something unique and different to the table. It's up to America now.

    • Garrett (on his musical inspirations): Actually three of the contestants from season five, Elliott Yamin, Ace Young and Chris Daughtry. All three of those guys have inspired me in a big way to do this. I'm really more of an alternative pop [singer]. You guys didn't really get to see my style.

    • Garrett (on what he thought about people comparing him to Leif Garrett): I've never heard of the guy before that, nobody's ever compared me to Peter Frampton or Leif Garrett. I went back to the house that I was staying at, Googled them, because I had no idea who they were and I was hoping that they were decent-looking guys, so I was pretty happy when they popped up. I don't know, it's just my hair. I use Garnier Fructis and I've been using that for a long time.

    • Garrett (on how he got to San Diego to audition for "American Idol"): We were here visiting family and I saw they were having auditions. I've been watching American Idol since season one, so I've wanted to audition since then. Once I saw it there, I was just like "Dude, you know I should just do it now." So I tried out and I made it to the top 12 guys so I'm pretty proud of myself for doing that.

    • Garrett (his reaction on Simon Cowell saying he looked pale): Well, when he first said that, I actually found some humor in it because I know that I have fair skin and I'm really happy with the way I look. It didn't really bother me. I could tell that Paula and Randy were upset about that because that's not something you should be saying to a contestant. Maybe Simon couldn't find anything bad to say about my voice.
