(About the first night in New York) (Laughs) My first night in Madison Square Garden was probably the most embarrassing night of my entire life and will always be the most embarrassing night. I can remember walking down the hall and seeing Michael Jackson’s picture (on the wall) performing, (along with) Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Madonna, Janet Jackson…I mean everybody’s picture was up there and I was nervous to begin with. So, I go out there and I start dancing and I go to hit a huge high note, and I bend down, and I sing my pants off, literally. My pants crack…split…and started falling off, and I slowly walked backstage…started crying…I was freaked out. My mom runs back there, pulls off her jeans…(giggles)…so she’s standing in her underwear, backstage. She gave me her shoes and everything. I crouched over and I walk out and I say “Alright…I don’t know who saw my booty, but I’m still gonna sing it off, so here’s my next song,” and I tried to do it, even though it was one of the most humiliating things. I couldn’t just stop, ‘ya know, so…that was my night.
(About the second night in New York) Tonight, I’m gonna sing my butt off, not my pants. (Laughs)
