John recently spoke with ET about becoming a mentor to American Idol’s top contestants.
‘They said, you know, ”Could you come down and be a mentor?” I’m like, ”Mentor?!” These kids are so great I’m gonna tell them one thing, and they’re gonna go, ”Stamos, we’ve heard you sing. Stop”,’ John laughed.
‘I think John probably said yes when he heard ”Disney”,’ Katy said.

She added: ‘The thing is, John and I are probably the biggest Disney fans. So he gets to go to Disney World with the kids, which is basically the greatest place on Earth, and so I’m a little jealous because they didn’t ask me. I would’ve totally done it!’.
