American Idols Live!!!

I had such an amazing time at the AI concert last night! The entire show was wonderful! Mad props to all of the performers for killing that stage! (yes, I just said "mad props")

First of all, I went to the show with Mandisa and she is the best concert companion in the world! We had so much fun dancing, screaming and being in awe of each of the singers!

So...here's my quick rundown...

I was ultra excited to see the band! Most of them were the guys that played on my season's tour, so it was like a reunion. They sure did not disappoint! They were such a highlight of the show for me. It's so wonderful to have a slamming band behind you when you're singing your heart out! Took pics with some of my favorite buddies from the band...

This is my boy Aaron Spears!!! Love his drumming so much!!! Plus, he's such an amazing big brother!
This is my boy Tim Stewart, a.k.a. guitarist extraordinaire!!! All I can say is WOW!

The rest of the band (Dave, Andy and Brandon) was amazing too! LOVE THEM!

I don't have pics of these wonderful people, but...

Thia was amazing! Her tone was gorgeous and she handled that stage like a pro. Loved her.

Paul was mesmerizing! His stage presence is just amazing! He had the audience up and jamming with him and I was sad when he finished.

Lauren looks like a little country baby doll on that stage and that girl sang with all she had. It was great to hear her open up and just sing! Her voice is absolutely beautiful!

Scotty owned every bit of that stage! I loved seeing him in his element. He is a bonafide country star. Can't wait to see what's next for him.

James is a showman...plain and simple! Wow! He really had the audience in the palm of his hand and then proceeded to melt the paint of the walls with his amazing voice! Loved it sooooo much!

Pia...WOW! That voice is just phenomenal! Every time she opened her mouth is was flawless and beautiful! I'm in awe of her singing and can't wait to hear an entire album of hers. We did take a picture and she posted it right here... http://www.whosay.com/piatoscano/photos/51719 She is such a sweet girl too and am definitely a fan!

Stefano nailed his performances! He sang his heart out and it was pretty flawless! This boy can sing and he's a sweetie! (And pretty cute)

Jacob can just flat out sing! His energy on stage was infectious! Mandisa and I couldn't help but get up on our feet and cheer him on! He's amazing!

Naima KILLED that stage! She is such a great performer! She gave it all she had and it was spectacular to watch!

Haley, Haley, Haley! What can I say??? This girl's voice is absolutely phenomenal! I don't think it has any limits! She just effortlessly wowed the entire audience. Loved meeting her! She's got spunk. I have no doubt that she's gonna fight her way to the top no matter what! Love it!

This boy right here made my night!!!! You guys know I love me some Casey, but after seeing him perform live, I am a lifelong fan! His performance skill and his voice were so amazing! At one point, I had to just stand there and shake my head in awe! He is a true artist and on top of all of that, he's an amazing person! He gives the best hugs in the world and he's such a sweetheart! Can you tell I loved meeting him? :-)  He's so awesome, he gets two pics. Hehehe...


So I had a great night! If they are coming to your city, definitely go to the show. You won't be disappointed! :-)

Thanks for sharing, Melinda. I'm sure the current Idols loved meeting you and Mandisa. I couldn't go to the concert in my area, but I always love reading others' recaps and seeing the pictures. Scotty is my favorite. Btw, he said that he wants to go to Belmont to pursue a music career once he is done with high school! So how about that? I know you went there, as did one of Scotty's favorites, Josh Turner.

Saw them the next night, in St. Louis, and was not disappointed. They all have wonderful, and unique voices. Of course, I'm also unchanged in my love for Casey and Haley particularly. Got to meet Casey, but sadly, not Haley. So kind and sincerely interested in his fans.
