Former "American Idol" star Matt Giraud dropped by my "Going Gonzo" show on WJRW-AM (1340) on Thursday to talk about his Grand Rapids concert at the Intersection and his "mystery show" at the Wild Bull tonight in Kalamazoo.

But the topics of "American Idol," "The X Factor" and judge Simon Cowell were bound to come up.

And it's no surprise the Season 8 star said that he prefers "Idol" over all of the other singing competitions out there, including "X Factor."

After calling "American Idol" the "biggest show in the world," he said many reality TV shows are too slick.

"'American Idol' is a good show, and I think it's better than some of the other things out there and 'The X Factors' of the world," he said on the air.

"I feel like those shows are overproduced compared to 'Idol,'" he added.

He pointed to the many tears shed on "The X Factor."

In fact, on last night's finale (with Melanie Amaro winning the $5 million recording contract), "X Factor" producers made fun of all the crying by judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.

Giraud said he still keeps in touch with Paula, as well as fellow Season 8 singers Scotty MacIntyre and Danny Gokey. He has performances scheduled with both of them in the new year.

Also in 2012, he says he plans to release his debut CD, which he has been recording at River City Studios in Grand Rapids. His success this year has been on duets with Jim Brickman, Anna Wilson and most recently Lindsey Sky.

He says he will get on the road more in the coming year.

"We gotta get the record out first," he adds.
