American Idol Live

Tuesday night Nick and I went to the American Idol concert and it was AWESOME! Yes, we were surrounded by 10 year old girls and yes, we did scream like ten year old girls!! I am so glad we went - it was such a fun concert and they were all so amazing live! Some of the highlights....

1)David A.'s entrance onto the stage. He came up from below the stage sitting at the piano, playing "Angels". So awesome!!

2)The ten minutes it took before we could hear David A. sing because of all his fans(see video below). I loved seeing that he had so many supporters - he is so freaking cute. David A.'s whole set was amazing - his voice was even better in person. He does not disappoint!

3)Carly Smithson's opening number "Bring Me to Life" by Evanesence. I wasn't really a fan of hers during the show, but she performed this song fabulously!

4)Brooke White didn't indulge in any long-winded speeches. Don't get me wrong, I like her a lot. She is very talented by she tended to talk endlessly and I feared she would see the stage as a platform to do so again.

5)Michael John's whole set was killer! He also didn't thrill me during the show but he is an amazing performer - LOVE HIM!

6)David Cook wearing a pink shirt that said "BAD" on it. Since I am talking about him, I have to say he really got on my nerves at the concert. He fluctuated between a super rocker dude and being a completely bored, frustrated artist. When he was being rocker dude, he delivered. Billy Jean was phenominal.

Amyway, it was money well spent. We had a great time being kids again and I can't wait to watch these guys continue their careers. Here's a few pics!
