You were a judge on ‘American Idol’ this season. You didn’t like it, right?
Oh, I liked it. I just wouldn’t want to do it full-time. I don’t want to tell people they’re not good. It’s just hard. Plus I just think, “Who am I to say?” Bette Midler is one of my favorite performers of all-time, and I remember reading a story that her voice teacher in Hawaii said she’d never make it and I just think I don’t want to be that person who tells the next Bette Midler that she’s never going to make it.
I’m liking Chenoweth more and more: She played Glinda on Broadway’s Wicked; she has a sense of humor, she loves Dolly Parton and now she acknowledges the divinity of Miss M! Way to go Kristin!!
For the ones who don’t know Chenoweth, try watching her perform the song “Popular” from the Broadway hit “Wicked” @
