‘American Idol’ Fan Bus Hits the Road

On Wednesday, Jan. 19, the date of the American Idol Season 10 premiere the “Idol Across America Mobile Experience” will launch a four-week, 16-city nationwide tour in Los Angeles, reports Usa Today.

The biodiesel-fueled tour bus will feature Idol memorabilia, including framed platinum records, a Ryan Seacrest suit, Carrie Underwood’s finale dress and David Cook’s guitar.

U.S. residents 15 and older will be able to record their own take on host Seacrest’s signature “This is American Idol” phrase as part of a contest for the chance to deliver the line on the Idol stage alongside Seacrest (For eligibility and rules, go to americanidol.com.).

Fans also will be able to take part in the “Be Your Own Idol” singing experience and pose for photos at the judges’ table with lifesize cutouts of Seacrest and judges Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez.

Ha ha…I’m so going to this when it comes to Boston.

    Sounds exciting. (cough)

    Hee. One of the peeps I follow on Twitter (Cook fans list) asked whether Syesha Mercado’s dress would be displayed in tatters in the undercarriage of the AI bus. Penguin song, anyone?

  • Incipit

    Heh. That could be The Happy Feet Memorial Bus. Except, that would have to be a revolving title – to accommodate past busings. I love it!

    haha wowwww
    i legit had a dream about something like that last year i think hahaha

    Well, maybe they could put Kristy Lee Cook’s horse in a trailer in the back, along with Syesha’s dress and David’s guitar. Something of hers should be there, since it’s her fault for everything ;)

  • Duke

    Oh cool! Im gunna try and make it to the Boston one (my new city!!!). Its nice to finally live in a place where things actually happen on a regular basis.

    And i vote for Kristy’s 12-gauge to be on display along with fantasia’s missing heel from her finale moment.

    It will probably be on display in LA for a few days at the beginning. They say the tour launches on the 19th, but the first city listed, San Diego, isn’t until the 26th. A 16-city tour is specified, but there are only 15 in the list.

    I have to confess.. I find this kinda of creepy. Don’t ask me to explain.
