On getting to perform Jasmine Sullivan's Bust Your Windows" in Episode 3: I was nervous when I saw the background dancers for the first time because theyre so tall and theyre kicking their legs up in the middle. Im like, my heads gonna be chopped off. I hadnt danced for a long time but now Im really comfortable. I was singing for a long time, doing open mikes, everywhere in Santa Monica, L.A., Hollywood. So performing is what Im used to. Im a little more comfortable doing this than the acting part.
