During a recent visit to Seattle, "Idol" alum Stefano Langone sat down with OutView Online's MK Scott to discuss the "American Idol" tour and to give a special message to his GLBT fans.

MK: Stefano - in a way, you are actually coming home (this interview was in Seattle, WA) right? Because you are originally from Kent, Washington?

Stefano: Yes, I am. Yes, I am. This is the home state. I'm really excited to perform here, man, it's going to be crazy. I got a lot of family and friends. A lot of supporters in Washington that helped me out and get to be, to help me get where I want to be. So again, I'm just really, really pumped up to perform for them.

MK: So it's really cool to come back and perform in such a large arena like this?

Stefano: Oh, for sure. You know, getting, getting the fans, and, and seeing all them at once, and, you know, we performed at one arena with I think it was 17,000. You know, I mean, being in such a big arena, I mean, it's unbelievable. And this arena is going to be great. You know, it just gives you that energy. You get that energy from all those people, and that feeling that, it's an amazing rush. So it's an unbelievable feeling and it's something I'll never forget.

MK: So far, how has the tour been so far for you"?

Stefano: The tour's been great. You know, we just got on our busses today, we've been flying around a little bit, but the busses, which kind of the busses are amazing, you know, it's going to be crazy. You know, we're going all over the country, so I'm really, really excited to do this and I don't think there's anything bad about it.

MK: And on the show what was the best, or favorite moment for you.

Stefano: I have a few. But one of them was definitely my smoking off a performance for my Wildcards`00:01:55, you know, I really got to prove the judges and contestants and everybody, really, that I was there for a reason. And I should be there. And that was really cool for me. And then, you know, I think my last, my very, very last performance on that state, doing lately, that last time, was a really great moment for me too, just because it was a little while out and I said, you know what? I did what I needed to do and now it's time to take what I learned in this competition and let, let the beast that they created go out in both the industry and make movies.

MK: and tell us about your least favorite moment.

Stefano: Least favorite moment? Oh, man, I don't know if I have a least favorite moment. I would say getting asked if I was guilty that I got through it. Pia didn't. And Pia didn't, when we were in the bottom two. I think that that, that was probably the, the least favorite moment I've had since, well, since this American Idol experiences has happened. But, you know, it is what it is, and it outcomes with what you do and I'm just glad to be here. I'm glad to express my love for music, and the voice, and everything. And I'm so excited to be able to, to, you know, inspire people and, and touch people's lives, man. That's number one. And that's why we do what we do. And I'm just so excited to do great things.

>MK: What is next for you?

Stefano: You know what? It's all about recording, you know, networking. Taking what you learned from this experience and really taking it out into the industry. You know, and for me, I think number one is staying true to myself, and staying true to what really matters, and that's the music. The music is what, is what matters. And, you know, that's really important to me, and I'm going to be out there on my piano, and I'm going to be dancing, I'm going to be feeling the music, and I'm going to be touching people with my voice. So that's number one and that's what I'll be doing, for sure.

MK: And you were in a band with some of the other male contestants. Is that something you guys are still going to continue to do?

Stefano: Maybe, man. You know, I mean it was a really cool experience. We're, we got a name, and, you know, I can't say it right now, but I don't want to throw that, that clue out there. But, you know what? It's, it was fun, and we actually killed, it was really cool. And, you know, who knows? Maybe that might come out again.

MK: OUTscene has an audience of GLBT Idol fans. I know that you have a gay following. Do you have any messages to your gay fans?

Stefano: Just thank you for, for all the support that you guys have gave, given me, and helping me get to where I am today. You know, I couldn't be here if it wasn't for you guys. So much love, and stay supporting, stay there for me, because I'm there for you guys. So much love again. Shout out!

>MK: Okay. I have Twitter fan question from Ethan; how did you get so cute?

Stefano: Well, I got to thank my parents for that one. So Kerrie and Ernie Langone, thank you very much.

MK: (Chuckle) And you're Italian, right?

Stefano: I'm Italian. I'm half Italian, half Spanish.

MK: And, also I have my burning question, which is the question that I want to know. You got your voice, and the body. What is the toughest to maintain?

Stefano: Wow. You know what? I'd say they're equally as tough, because your voice, you have to really watch what you do. You have to watch how you talk. You have to watch, you know, what you're putting in your body. And, you know, keeping up the, the six pack is kind of a hard thing to do. So you got to be on that all the time too. So, you know, there are two things that, you know, for me I take very seriously in, in what I eat, and how I treat my body, and that's very important to me, in health.
