Phil Stacey, Melinda Doolittle, Gina Glocksen and Chikezie may be heading to a town near you on the American Idols Spring break tour. Laura Saltman interviews them just as they are about to hit the road. Watch the video after the jump.
She asks them about the new Judges Save rule, and it’s a pretty big thumbs down from all of them.
As an aside, Saltman interviewed some other Idols HERE about the Save.
Guess who isn’t a fan? Michael Johns! He says, “I personally dont really dig it that much. As someone that was the shock value and it would have helped I dont really think its necessary, ” Michael continues, “I think that the drama of Idol isnt it? That sometimes America gets it right. Sometimes they get it wrong. You gotta vote for the people you love.”
There you go! And I agree. Phil Stacey says, “Basically what they are saying is dont vote Adam Lambert or Danny Gokey out cause if you do they will get saved. Paula wants to see them in the finale. So they will save them.” Ha ha. Gotta love Phil.
Plus, Chikezie will be recording an album while he’s on the road. I wonder if he’s signed with Universal?
Video, and dates for the Idols Spring break tour are after the Jump. I am seriously thinking of hitting the Springfield, MA show in April…
