How’d The Tonight Show appearance go?

It went really well. I was super nervous. It was just so surreal being there. My dressing room was right next to Roseanne Barr’s, and I could hear her talking over there, and I just couldn’t believe it.

[During the show], we were supposed to go by a script, because we had all these sounds we wanted to go over. Einstein didn’t get to do a lot of things that we wished she could have, but she did show off pretty well. Jay Leno was really super nice. He came by before the show and was really interested in African greys, and why they mimic, and he said, “If she mimicked the sound of a monkey, would the monkey in the rain forest think it was a monkey, or would it think it was a bird?”

I talked with Roseanne briefly, and she was very sweet, and she was telling me her phobia of birds. In the clip, she scoots far away on the couch from me. Bo Bice [American Idol runner-up] was really nice, and I got to shake Richie Sambora’s hand. We were out on stage, and he was holding his guitar, and I was like, “I’m sorry I just really have to shake your hand,” so he put it down, and shook my hand.
