Appearing on Good Morning America, both Moseley and Cater seemed in high spirits about the season. Although coming in second, Moseley looked forward to his future in the music industry. And for Carter, the realization is still setting in. But as the interview went on, both singers were asked about Perry leaving the show and who they believed should take her place. For Carter, she said, “I feel like there is going to be such a void when Katy goes on and releases her own music and does her thing. And she is an amazing artist and I’m so excited to see that. But I don’t know. Who can replace that? She’s synonymous with the show at this point. So iconic to it.”

While not giving up any names, Moseley followed Carter by joking, “I think someone has a big decision to make. I’m thankful it’s not me.”
