Idol Worship: Post-show Report

For such an anticipated showdown, there wasn’t all that much going on in the media area on Tuesday night. Most radio interviews had been done on Monday in the Nokia’s downstairs lounge, where all of the Top 13 were paraded down a long hallway of stations set up for remote feeds. Fox affiliates got their own time with the season 8 bunch in an area set up outside the Nokia Theater doors and accessible to just about anyone off the street. That’s where we saw Allison Iraheta graciously pose with a couple of eager girl fans after the show, and also ran into Chicken Little himself, Kevin Covais, who was getting recognized left and right.

Meanwhile, out by the loading dock, we spotted Megan Joy and David Archuleta having a light-hearted chat before he was chauffeured away by a woman who looked very much like his mom and Megan was ushered back inside for more rehearsals.

Ryan Seacrest left the building just after eight, but not before asking a crowd of onlookers, “Who’s it gonna be?” Does that guy ever break from hosting duties?

Surprise special guest Rod Stewart made a stealth exit after a relatively quick post-show rehearsal. We couldn’t make out the song, only that it was mid-tempo, which narrows it down to a couple dozen possibilities.

A flock of paparazzi had gathered outside the backstage exit and went berserk when Extra correspondent Teri Seymour appeared. According to one such shutterbug, Simon Cowell’s ex-girlfriend was seen crying in the same spot earlier in the evening after a fan allegedly grabbed her by the neck and gave her a scare.

As for the final two’s post-show plans? A long to-do list that includes taping Wednesday night’s opener, rehearsing with the Top 11, and many, many interviews. Of course, it’s just the start of their weeks-long talk-fest. Here’s some of what they had to say on Tuesday night:

On the winner’s song, “No Boundaries”
Adam: “It’s a great song, and it actually has a really great message. There was a lot of lyrics and it was a big song. We didn’t have a lot of time to work on it, so it was kind of a rush job. The recordings are coming out soon and they’re both really, really good.”

On their best performances
Kris: “I think I did my best on ‘Ain’t No Sunshine.’ I had already rehearsed it plenty, and it was ready.”
Adam: “I wouldn’t have picked ‘Change Is Gonna Come’ for myself, but when Simon gave it to me, I looked at the words and it really moved me. Anyone who feels oppressed can relate to that song. It’s been a civil rights anthem for a long time, there’s all sorts of new civil rights issues that are coming up right now.”

On their friendship
Kris:
“We’ve been roommates since the Top 13.”
Adam: “[But] we don’t get naked together.”

Summer resort.

You live
in the youth
of a summer
resort, your
delicate voice
appears in
my mind like
a winged creature,
and even a
pleasure describes
in a moment
a bright sensibility.

American Idol lost all its credibility! Adam is the best singer! Really true artist! Everyone knows that! He is the BEST! EVEN KRIS KNOWS THAT! Adam is and was the BEST of all american idol! That is a fact! The most talented, the most creative. He carried the show for the entire season on his back! This is ricidulous! Kris can't sing! Season 8 was one of the best seasons ever with a lot of good singers and Kris wins? Kris just can't sing!!! He kills himself to sing nothing!!! You can see his veins jumping from his neck everytime! What is wrong with you america? That is why I don't believe in the americans! The same people that elected Bush twice! The same people that makes Hip Hop and Rap the biggest selling on the music market! This is pure prejudice! It is SAD!!! Just can't believe how unfair and blind can the american public be!

In a jiffy in a while I net e-mails or phone calls from aspiring or beginner combination photographers asking me for tips on how to behove wealthy in the combination field. My gold medal insupportable is continually what their motivation is to appropriate for a combination photographer. Some force retort that they heard from big gun that it is affable coins, or that they got a aloof [url=http://tipsforphotography.wordpress.com]caution[/url] camera that takes renowned photos or that they would like to come in some cabbage on the side etc.

While it is faithful that compound photography can be a extremely useful traffic achieving achievement in the combination assiduity is not righteous a purport of getting a camera and start shooting. uniting photography involves artistic proclivity, benevolent feeling, uncut mastery of lifelike techniques, point familiarity, and a stubborn lustfulness to learn and emancipate the to the fullest extent to the compound couple.

I am sure that there are budding and experienced musicians who would want to line up with the pop idols and have a huge fan following. My brother who is a musician has found great possibilities with this interesting website where Service Providers can advertise their capabilities, bid on Projects, respond to inquiries and locate, connect with and engage to provide their Services directly to Buyers.
