At least that’s what his words suggest. “Today is the big day,” Harris writes. He continued: “I am so grateful for this incredible experience and for all the love and support you have shown me through this amazing journey. I know you’ve already done so much for me, but there are three last things I need you to do: Watch tonight’s show. Sing ‘Rockstars’ as loud as you can and vote for me if you liked my performance. I love you all and no matter what, there are two things I can promise you: I’m going to enjoy every second tonight and I’m going to bust my ass on stage.”
