  • Quotes

    • 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.
