Kady (on if Britney Spears contacted her about her impersonations of her): No word from Britney. I'm still waiting for her to call me about lunch [laughs]. I love Britney and I'm a big fan of her and it's kinda cool that I can sing like her.
Kady (on what she will do after "American Idol"): I definitely want to open up an animal shelter and I'm definitely going to keep working on my music. I eventually also want to open up a camp for kids and I definitely want to be a spokesperson for gay rights. My best friend is gay Freddie Mercury was gay who is my idol. I just think that you shouldn't define somebody by their sexuality. And I think that gay people not being able to get married ... it's just like history repeating itself.
Kady (on what she thought about the judges already acting like David Archuleta will win "American Idol"): I think that everybody in the Top 12 is just so talented in their own way. It's kind of an equal playing field now. I think everybody's a dark horse.
Kady (on being criticized for having already recorded an album): I just don't think that that's very important because this industry's so unpredictable and anybody can fail at an album. These days anybody can pretty much get a record deal, so a second chance is fine.
Kady (on how she felt about Simon commenting on her personality on "American Idol"): You know, I never really understood what he was saying [laughs]. Maybe one day I'll understand but I still don't really get it. I just felt like I couldn't please Simon no matter what. I did my best and I think I did well and I went out with a bang like I wanted to.
Kady (on if she was happy with her song choices on "American Idol"): The first song I did, 'Groovy Kind of Love,' I actually did because someone else was doing my first song choice. I had to pick a new song and I picked [it] because my mom used to sing it to me when I was little. [I chose] the Queen song this week, because I knew that even if I was going out I would go out doing my favorite song ever.
Kady: I'm like obsessed with music, really. It's an obsession. It's like beyond... it's unhealthy, OK.
Kady: My most interesting job was like recently I worked for a studio in Houston. I got to hear a lot of really cool bands and I tried to help people sing and I tried to help them out.
Kady: My family has always helped me pursue my dream. They've always supported me in everything I've done.
Kady: I think people would be surprised to learn that I am an amenextriust, my pinking is crooked and it hurts sometimes a lot. Oh and I have a Chihuahua named peanut and I treat him like he's my child. Like we do everything together, we sleep together, we eat together, everything.
Kady: I would say I'm kind of a mix of Kellie Pickler and I don't really know. Sanjaya because I have weird crazy hair sometimes, like I can't tame it and… I don't know.
Kady: My favorite performer of all time is Freddie Mercury of Queen, I'm obsessed with him. He's my idol, my ultimate like, idol, I love him.
Kady: I wanna become the next American Idol so that I can help people with my music. If I can just help like one person get through their day easier by listening to a song I made, that's my dream, my ultimate dream.
Kady: I can do impersonations, that's one of my other talents besides singing in my voice. I can do Cher, that one's really funny. I can do Britney Spears, the guy from Rascal Flatts, I don't know his name yet. Christina Aguilera, I can do and Shakira.
Kady: I can't remember a time when I didn't sing. I, honestly I don't know, I guess whenever I started talking.
Kady: When I found out I was in the top 24 I was in complete shock. I couldn't speak. I tried to say, "Thank you," to Randy, Simon and Paula, but it wouldn't come out and I just was crying. I promised myself I wouldn't cry no matter what, but it was just really shocking.
Kady: Well, people think this is really weird, but I like to put pickles and ketchup on my pizza. Like every time I eat it. It's really good! You should try it, seriously. It's amazing.
