my eyes open when i was 17 years old. kelly: they love watching young people sing. it's an embracing community. jennifer: there's no more meaningful place to sing. i still try to apply that. like sing with a purpose. and come from the heart. michael: we feel it. when you sing, we feel it. we're going to take a quick break. and we're going to wonder what do you do when an audience member walks on stage in the middle of your performance in color color. we're going to find out what she does with jennifer hudson, everybody. >> friday on "live," carly simon.

[applause] so we kind of connect. but that happens with everything for me. kelly: yeah. michael: so when you're on stage, is there any mest happens? what about the audience? is anybody disruptive? jennifer: yes. that's the thing. with live shows, you never know what's going to happen. the other night, an audience member decided to move the prop because it was in his way. it was between his legs and it's in the show. it's only baskets and chairs. but he gets up and he moves the
basket. [laughter] and one of the actors moved it back. and he got up and moved it again.

about three seconds, i started to see stars and had to sit back down. we did it about three or four times that day. two days later, they got me doing it again. and then it was the pain that i wanted to sit back down. and past that, it was rehabilitation from february 21 till may 16 is actually when i made my return. so through that whole process and still today, i'm doing some rehab stuff. kelly: it must be very frustrating when you're so used to being in this level of competition, this arena and knowing that you have this injury. were there times where you just, you know, broke down and said i'm just done? i'm not going to do it anymore. i'm just done. kyle: i never said i wasn't going to do it again. i always wondered? i was ever going to have the opportunity to do it again with. the injury sustained and everything that happened in the crash, i wonder was i ever going to be as good as i once was and to be able to get back in the race car and to get out there
and to win again, i think my fifth race back, i was able to go to victory lane. and it's like let's see if we can continue and keep the winning ways progressing. michael: well, you answered all those questions to come back and do it before and you've done it. jeff gordon is one of your idols. kyle: he is. he's your favorite, right? kelly: i have a warm spot in my heart because we worked together. so i adore him. kyle: ok. it's a business thing. got it.

championship and then he basically told me right after that that it was a special moment for me that i should enjoy and cherish it but if any of the other three drivers that could have won it, he was happy that it was me. michael: awesome. kelly: that's cool. [applause] jeff, he tells me that during a race, he'll lose 10 pounds of just like -- you know, it's physically grueling. you don't think of it as a -- kyle: he doesn't lose 10. i lose 10. i've got more to lose. kelly: how much do you lose? kyle: to me, it's seven or eight pounds. it's mostly water weight. a hot day is a hot day. it gets warm in those race cars. michael: your son, brexton, he was born in may. does that change your perspective? kyle: well, it does, of course. through the whole injury process too in february, my wife was six months pregnant. so she was helping me around the house and doing things.
one of the toughest things that i had to do is determine whether i wanted to go get up in the morning and use the restroom or stay in bed and use the bottle or something. through that whole process, she's pregnant and she's trying to do this and that and i'm telling to -- trying to tell or the take it easy. it was a wonderful time but it was so amazing during my rehabilitation. i want to be there and to stand and to walk and be able to stand next to her and help her through all of that and just just be, you know, on the side of the room and just sitting in the wheelchair. that wasn't my intention. so i was pretty pumped to get back and get standing and walking and ready for all of that and he's a dream child, man. he's my good luck charm, he is awesome. kelly: he's so cute. kyle: yeah, it's pretty cool. he's a good boy. and his birthday's 5-18. and the two sprint cup series cars i've ever raced in nascar was number five and number 18 and i won the championship in the year 15. kelly: that's great. michael: congratulations, man.
