>> what did your parents think?

>> they were really excited for me. they've always just been so supportive of whatever i want to do. and since i'm going to, you know -- i'm starting to act myself. they're kind of excited for me to come out as my own person.

>> what's most nerve wracking about this gig? walking across the stage and maybe tripping in your heels?

>> absolutely. i could barely walk over here in these heels, but i think i'm going to do okay because i have a couple of days to try out the heels and, you know -- make sure i can stand for so long.

>> we'll see you walking all over l.a. at the grocery store.

>> exactly, yeah.

>> we'll be looking for you on sunday night. congratulations.
