by at . Comments

Now that Lakisha Jones is off American Idol, everyone has the same question:

What was it like to kiss Simon Cowell?!? She gets to that answer and a few others below:

Kelly, Aaron

HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT
"People kept wanting that "And I Am Telling You" [like Jennifer Hudson in Dreamgirls] moment every week and when you're singing different genres of music, those styles don't necessarily have that big sound everybody's looking for each week. I did the best I could with what I was given and I gave it my all."

DAUGHTER KNOWS BEST
"[My daughter Brionne is] four now and I was crying last night and she looked at me and said "Mommy, I'm not mad." [Laughs] "I just thought that was really cute â€" it's almost like she was telling me "I'm proud of you â€" I'm not mad!"

SIMON AND LAKISHA SITTING IN A TREE…K-I-S-S-I-N-G!
"[Simon Cowell] is a good kisser and I would do it again! His lips were really soft and thin."

COWELL'S CATTY COMMENTARY
"My favorite comment from him would have to be "She's in a league all of her own. [Least favorite was] you're shouting!"

REUNITED AND IT FEELS SO GOOD
"[I'm excited to see] Sanjaya Malakar. He was like a little brother that got on your nerves all the time. He has all this energy! I appreciate the fact that he trusted my judgment, took my advice and was there for me when I needed him."

WHAT'S UP WITH WHO'S LEFT?
"Jordin's so doggone cute and she has a really good, genuine spirit about her. I love [Blake Lewis]. He keeps me going. He has originality and personality. Melinda has so much soul and power."

FEELINGS ABOUT FOURTH PLACE
"All I can say is look at Chris Daughtry."
