Feelin' the Burn!

That is...the red carpet SUNburn I got at the Americal Idol Finale! OUCH! But it was worth it to get all those handshakes fresh off the red carpet.
Talk about FUN! We didn't have to stay in line too long before they gave us our tickets for the Nokia Theatre. At which point we walked around and took a picture on the red carpet before they kicked us off. We had nothing better to do, so we were the first people to get behind the bars of the red carpet and faithfully stayed 'till we were fried to get as many celeb sightings in as possible. We shook hands with former Idol contestants Kim Caldwell, Justin Guarini, Melinda Doolittle, Constantine, Jasmine Trias, Chris Sligh, and saw Bo Bice.
We then went into the theatre and grabbed a snack and enjoyed the airconditioning. I wasn't thinking much about the show up to this point, but boy was I in for a surprise! What an amazing show! For those of you who saw it, imagine how good it was on tv and magnify that times 10. I was amazed that they never even showed the huge beautiful stage throughout the whole show, all you ever saw was the stairs behind the singers. There was so much more going on! It was amazing! All of the performances were incredible, but the best by far was George Michael. I couldn't believe he was there! Not that I love him so much, but he has one of THE best male voices and he sang one of my favorite songs, "Praying for time" off his Listen Without Prejudice album (listen to it from my playlist). I was beside myself the whole time and the entire audience was mesmerized. Of course, I'm glad Cook won, since he was the best performer/musician. I'm so glad we got to go! Thanks ladies for the good times!!!!

Wow! How fun! And you even got the souvenier sunburn to show for it! That's kind of funny to have George Micheal on an "Idol" program. He's one of the last people in the world I would ever want as an idol for my children (though I agree that he has a fantastic voice, some wonderful songs and is very intelligent). I'd take an idiot with a terrible voice and some morals ANY day! (But very cool that you got to see him anyway, I suppose!) That's so cool that you have a gang to hang with! (Thanks, girls, for putting up with my sister! :)
