And she points to some recent history to prove her point!
"[My former act] Chris Mann, prime example. Came in fourth last year. It's like, ultimately, who's the real winner? Who's Javier [Colon]? Who's Jermaine [Paul]? At this point, I think it's all about Chris Mann, thank you!"
Totes about Chris Mann - and thank YOU.
She also said:
"I lost [a talent show] myself earlier on in my career. I've gone on to do much bigger and better things - some people don't even know what Star Search was! I'm sure Dez will say the same in his own way one day."
Well, he definitely won't be anything like Christina - for a variety of reasons. But the biggest one is because, no one can do what Christina does.
