Last week on American Idol, the contestants were mentored by Jason Mraz, who is one of Alex Preston‘s favorites.

In fact, after the show, Jason told Alex he’d like to work together some time soon.

“He actually invited me over to write,” Alex tells On Air with Ryan Seacrest. “He’s like, ‘Yeah man, you gotta come over and we’ll jam an eat some good food.’ I’ve been a fan of Jason for seven years so it was just like an honor.”
