Melissa Gorga

Melissa is still mortified about Joe's full frontal scene.

I want to give you a little background on why I wrote that song. It's not because I'm on a reality TV show, actually I wrote the song before the cameras were ever rolling. I wrote On Display because I wanted people to be able to relate to it. I feel like everyone is 'On Display' at some point in their day-to-day life. When you start a new job, when you marry into a new family, when you go to a new school, if and when you have to tell your loved ones that you're gay -- you are 'On Display' each and every time. Many times I have found myself in these situations. I know how it feels, and I know that there are people out there that want to see you fall and don't want you to make it, but this song is about empowerment and believing in yourself! They can just keep on waiting on you, waiting on you, waiting on you! I can't wait for you to hear the other songs that I have written and recorded, especially the ballad to my husband. My voice is getting stronger and stronger and I am learning how to use it better than ever. I think you're really going to love what's to come! 

It felt so amazing on the stage that night. The moment I got out there all my nerves went away and I loved every minute of it! And yes, I did sing live over the track. This is a dance song with heavy choreography, and that is what most artists do. I have to admit hearing Joe Giudice finally say something nice was a little bit of a shock, but it was real, and I appreciate him saying it. It does take a lot of courage to put yourself out there in front of all of those people, especially for the first time. Thank you so much to everyone who has been so positive with me and sticking through until the end, I can't explain how much I really do love you guys! Of course I have to thank the one person who is my constant support -- my husband, Joe. He is my rock and has been with me every step of the way. I feel so blessed to have him in my life. He's such an amazing father, and we have so much fun together. Without him none of this would have been possible.
