American Idols Live! Chicago IL


ETA:   We’re back!   Holy crap, I am crazy ass exhausted right now, but I’ll try to post some stuff tonight.   The trade off, is that Headlines are going to be very very late tomorrow morning.   Maybe I’ll just post a thread and you guys can find them for me. Heh.

Well, it turned out I wasn’t in the 5th row…. I was in the third row!   Right next to the stage!   Pretty sweet.   And I kept waiting for it, but no security guards approached me as I videoed performances tonight.   Cool!

Like Sarah said in the thread, the arena was packed and the crowd was crazy.   The show has tightened up quite a bit since I saw it in AZ at the beginning of the month. And let me say little Ramiele has improved SO MUCH since then.   I actually enjoyed her set.

There was a huge crowd out by the buses this afternoon, so I didn’t get to talk to anyone, but I was able to snap a bunch of pictures.   All the Idols made an appearance except Chikezie and the Davids, although I heard Archie came out later after we left.   Michael is very personable with the crowd.   Brooke and Carly love chatting with the fans.   I got a few of them to pose for my camera.   After I snapped a picture Jason said, “Did you get that?”   And that was the extent of my Idol conversation.   I was a few rows back, and there were quite a few people vying for his attention.

More from me later…
