"I would never discredit anyone that is working their way up on a show like 'American Idol,'" Moore told reporters in New York recently.
"I'm a fan of the show and I watch it every week and I think they work so hard overcoming all of the obstacles to get on the show in the first place and then every week they are judged in front of all of America. It must be overwhelming, all of the pressures. I give them complete credit for getting up on stage. I think I would crumble under that pressure. So, no I think they deserve all the success that they get."
