American Idol Winners Taping Segments for Season 10

Lee DeWyze spent part of Labor Day Weekend in Chicago with a film crew, shooting segments for the next season of American Idol.

Now, there’s twitter evidence that film crews will be shooting segments with all 9 Idol winners.

Los Angeles producer, Golareh Safarian has been keeping a twitter diary of time spent shooting with the Idols.   Check out these tweets:

On September 5:  “Another beautiful day in Chicago! shooting with Lee Dewyze, his family and friends…”

On September 6:  “Had a gr8 shoot with Lee…lots of screaming fans in Mt. Prospect!! On our way to NYC to shoot with Jordin Sparks…I LOVE New York!”

Safarian gets together with Jordin  in New York on September 8:  “Muy busy day in my NY hotel/office. Prepping for tmrw’s shoot w. Jordin & the AI shoots coming up in Kansas City, Phoenix, and Birmingham..”

On September 10:  “2 down, 7 to go. Kansas City is next. Looking forward to working with David Cook again! But still got a few errands in NY ;o)”

An interview with Jordin’s dad on September 12, “Great interview with Phillipi Sparks! And we made it to our flight on time! See you later New York! Will be missin ya!!”

David Cook in Kansas City is next.

On September 12: “Hello Kansas City! Driving to Blue Springs now for a mini location scout.

On September 13:  “Kaufman Stadium, ice cream parlor/antique shop, war museum, hangar, bar & burger joint. Still 2 come, a corn field & KC Power & Light. Busy!.”

And finally, late September 13: “Just wrapped our broll shoot day! Exhausted but we got some gorgeous stuff. Crazy shoot day w David Cook tmrw & the weather-well-we’ll see.”  The shoot with David Cook is scheduled for today.

Ruben Studdard and Taylor Hicks are from Birmingham.  Phoenix is Jordin’s hometown.  I wonder if the material will be used in conjunction with Idol’s 10 year anniversary celebration?  Or maybe used in a series of American Idol commercials?
