Jessica Meuse: An American Idol with American Determination

In 2014, Jessica Meuse had a successful run on American Idol, Season 13, finishing 4th and gaining worldwide recognition. Following American Idol, Jessica toured with American Idol LIVE!, wrote two singles “Done” and “Rio Grande” and she recently signed with L.A. Management Group. Despite busily preparing to record her next album, Jessica was kind enough to sit down and answer a few questions for our blog.

Hey Zeus: Jessica, Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to answer some questions. Tell us a little about yourself.

JM: I’m 26 years old. Grew up in Alabama and as a kid, I moved around… a lot. Because I moved around so much, I was always sort of a loner, but that’s what helped me become the person that I am right now and I have learned that I am a constant work in progress, I’m constantly improving myself.

Hey Zeus: You became the first participant in the show’s history to perform an original song in the finals. How did that come about?

JM: For the Final, the contestants were asked to perform the song they performed during their audition, I had performed my own song during the first audition, so that’s what I sang for the finals.


Hey Zeus: What was your thought process with performing your own song at the audition?

JM: During auditions, I decided that I was going to get selected or rejected performing my own song. The judges were going to choose me or reject me, based on MY music, not someone else’s.

Hey Zeus: So after season 13, and finishing 4th you when on tour. What was life like on the American Idol LIVE! Tour? Is touring/living on the road, something you could do full time?

JM: I absolutely loved it. Because I moved around a lot growing up, feel I was better prepared for life on the road. I developed great relationships with the crew, staff and some of the other contestants.


Hey Zeus: What is the most memorable moment you’ve had with your fans, The Meuse Mafia?

JM: I had a girl get so excited to meet me that she screamed, hugged me and pulled my hair, while jumping up and down. She pulled my hair so hard I thought she was going to yank it out.

Hey Zeus: Finally, What do you enjoy most about your career, so far?

JM: I’m grateful for all of the support from family, friends and especially the fans. My mother is constantly giving me words of encouragement and supportive in every aspect of my life.
And my fans, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I truly appreciate and am humbled by the amount of love and support I receive on a daily basis from people on social media. I am very grateful for their support.
