Hollie’s Q&A as reported by American Idol:

Q: Who has influenced your personal musical style?
A: All the Divas … Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Christina Aguilera, and Mariah Carey especially. … And I can’t leave out Adele.

Q: Who is your favorite male artist and why?
A: Frank Sinatra … he always puts me in a good mood.

Q: Who is your favorite female artist and why?
A: Mariah Carey … she has the greatest voice on earth and is an incredible songwriter.

Q: What was the first concert you attended?
A: It was a British pop band – S Club 7.

Q: If you could perform in any venue?
A: Madison Square Garden, because I think that’s every aspiring artist’s dream venue to fill.

Q: How has music inspired you?
A: Music can help you through any kind of emotion. It can help you through a break-up, make you dance, or help you realize or understand something about yourself … and if I can sing a song and make someone feel those things then I will feel like I have made a difference.

Q: Do you have any formal singing training?
A: No … well I auditioned for season 10 and didn’t make it through to the top 24 so after that I got a voice teacher … the only training I have had has been in the past year.

Q: What album would your friends be surprised you own?
A: I don’t know about an album. My friends know I love Mariah Carey, but they may not know I have over 200 Mariah songs in my iTunes.

Q: If you could perform with any person or group, who would it be and why?
A: I think by now you should know it’s Mariah Carey.

Q: What do you do to unwind after a performance?
A: I don’t really unwind after a performance. I’m still pumped up and just want to get back on stage.

Q: Which theme week would be most challenging to you and why?
A: Probably rock week because I don’t know if my voice suits those kinds of songs.

Q: What theme week would you love to have for Season 11?
A: We should have a current Top 40 week. That could be fun.

Q: What’s your dream song to perform?
A: ‘Any Time You Need A Friend’

Q: What makes a great performer?
A: For me the voice is the most important, but making your singing believable makes a great performer.

Q: How do you combat stage fright?
A: Just think about the words to my song so I don’t forget and just say a prayer.

Q: How do you plan on differentiating yourself in the competition?
A: I never want to pick an easy song. I want to continue to challenge myself vocally.

Q: If you could model your career after an artist, who would it be and why?
A: Mariah Carey without a doubt. I don’t know if anyone will have as many number ones as her ever again. She is a pioneer for female artists and if I could have half of her success I would be very blessed.

Q: If you couldn’t sing, what other talent would you most like to have?
A: I would probably be a soccer player. Soccer is huge in my family and I have played my whole life.

Q: What has been the most unique job/chore you’ve ever had?
A: I used a leaf blower in three inch hot pink heels one time.

Q: How would you define success in life?
A: I want to be, above all, happy. No amount of money can provide happiness.

Q: What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever seen or experienced??
A: I sang the national anthem in front of the mayor of McKinney and had a total Christina moment and flubbed the lyrics … I cried from embarrassment for hours.

Q: What’s your proudest moment in life outside of American Idol?
A: I think graduating high school. I felt really accomplished that day.

Q: What would people be surprised to learn about you?
A: I don’t know if you can see on TV but I’m 4 foot 10 inches … legally a dwarf in Texas.

Q: If you have 24 hours to do anything you wanted, what would you do?
A: I would sell out Madison Square Garden and then go to dinner with Adele and Mariah and talk about how fabulous they are.

Q: Who is the person that you would most like to meet?
A: I feel like Mariah Carey is my answer to every question, but I think she is fabulous.

Q: Do you have a favorite quote, phrase or personal motto / words to live by?
A: ‘What would Mariah do?’ and ‘I’m a diva!’

Q: What’s been the most surprising part of the Idol experience so far?
A: Becoming so close to all of the contestants even though it’s a competition. We have really become a family because we are the only ones that can relate to what we are all going through.

Q: What have you learned about yourself by going through the Idol audition process?
A: That I need to believe in myself more … confidence is key.

Q: What are you hoping to get out of your Idol experience?
