Abrams said the work the finalists do is a grind.
"They go through so much. We just work all the time, seven days a week. The only time I had off was Easter." Abrams said.
Abrams also said it's easy to lose track of where you are in the world.
"It's a fantasyland. You lose track of reality when you're in Idol, you come out of it and you're like 'where am I?'"
