Fellow American Idol site, BuddyTV has an exclusive interview with former American Idol Anthony Federov.
I always liked Anthony’s voice and he had a great background story for himself as well. The BuddyTV interview gives us more information about Anthony and of course some of his opinions on the current American Idol 6th season.
Here’s Anthony’s response to a question about his own experience on American Idol:
Well, my experiences on the show…where do I start? It was definitely a rollercoaster. I mean, I know it is a cliché and everybody says it, but it really is in every sense of the word. The biggest plus for me was the fact that I got a crash course on the music industry in less than a year. Being on that show gives you an idea of how your life can be like if you succeed as an individual artist when you become a superstar. While you’re on the show, I mean, you’re exactly that; you’re a star, you’re one of the most famous people in America, everybody watches you. So, it taught me a lot and I mean I grew up a lot by being on the show. I really didn’t have a chance to observe myself while I was on the show because you’re so busy and every second of your day is accounted for, you really don’t have a chance to reflect on how you’re doing. So I would have to say that I learned about my highs when I got off the show, when things died down a little bit. I definitely became a more experienced person when it came to the business and the aspect of handling yourself in the music business world.
Did you know that Anthony is writing a column for Entertainment Weekly where he judges the judges each week? He’s joined by Ace Young and Kimberly Locke as well.
