Idoloonies: Stefano Langone Talks Piano Skills, 'Hello,' and Gordon Ramsay's Bad Behavior

During his American Idol run, Stefano Langone refused to play piano during live telecasts, was reluctant to discuss his backstory of being in a horrific car crash, and didn’t get stressed about tackling Lionel Richie’s “Hello” — despite the fact that it provided a major “moment” for Season 7 champ David Cook. In his freewheeling Idoloonies interview, Stefano dives into all these topics, plus his fantastic Wild Card performance of “I Need You Now,” his peculiar pronunciation of “ballerina,” the night Gordon Ramsay insulted his mother’s cooking, and why he was smiling the night he left the Idol stage as a seventh-place finisher. Press play below to watch the interview, then head to the comments to discuss. And for all my Idol interviews and recaps, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!
