“When I made it onto American Idol, I knew that food - my eating disorder - was the one thing really holding me back. I was binging my whole life away for days at a time. So when I got on the show, I said, ‘You know what? I can do well in this competition. Let me give myself a chance and just get a hold of this thing.’ … That’s why I say American Idol saved my life, because if I hadn’t auditioned I don’t think I would have gotten a handle on food.” ― Katherine McPhee
