Matt Giraud Speaks on Dreams, Plans

by at . Comments

Matt Giraud was eliminated from American Idol this week.

But the aspiring singer has no regrets, as he never he dreamed of winning the competition.

"I never came in wanting to be the American Idol. My dream was to play that piano on that stage. My dream was to sing jazz on that stage. My dream was to meet the mentors. That was like dreams come true for me," Giraud said in an interview this morning.

As for the crooner's upcoming plans?

"I would love to get on the road and maybe open up for a band after the [American Idol summer tour] - maybe like the Fray or Gavin DeGraw and just pay my dues in the music industry. And I'd like to get more into some soulful rock with a twist of blues on it. I'd love to see myself as a lead man with a piano and a band around me."
