American Idol Series Finale: More Backstage Photos

I LOVE LOVE LOVE when Idol alums from different seasons come together. They obviously have been through an experience that only their fellow “boot camp” survivors can understand. That special bond translates into some pretty cool photo opportunities, and it appears that brand-new friendships were forged this past week as the Idols rehearsed and prepared for the big night. Pretty awesome.

With executive producer, Nigel Lythgoe producing a finale that brought back dozens of Idol alums from across all 15 seasons, those photo and video ops were endless.

To put a cap on all the Idol alum goodness, here are a few more photos and tweets posted on social media during the last few days. I couldn’t resist.

Nigel Lythgoe loves the White Guys With Guitars. Did he have a choice? Heh.

Me, Phil, and Kris were all freaked about by the ghost of Josh Ledet behind Kris. #idolfinale
