Founder and editor of, home of the awesomest fan community on the net. I love cheesy singing shows of all kinds, whether reality or scripted. I adore American Idol, but also love The Voice, Glee, X Factor and more!


  1. So excited for tonight and for my actual show in September! Can’t wait for the setlist and videos! :D

  2. Thanks for finding those….the vocals sound nice, the Carole King song as a duet isn’t a bad choice, it seems…?

  3. I hope the idols have a memorable tour! It should be fun for all of them to spend the summer together and meet the fans. And to get a taste of tour life.

  4. Don’t know the song, but Kris sounded good, they all appear to be having a great time…and the final bows looked cute! ?

  5. I haven’t seen one anywhere on social media. I know of someone who is a huge Kris fan who is going to the Napa show tomorrow night. She’s usually good with providing set lists for his shows, so maybe she will be able to provide one for the entire concert

  6. Sweet. #ltd. Hope this works well enough that Disney lets all ten finalists have this experience next season.?? ?

  7. He really does have a really good voice for country music, doesn’t he. I see Cade on guitar, but who else is doing the backing vocals? It’s hard for me to make the other people on stage out

  8. Yeah, very smooth. I even like his EP. It’s another of those voices where it’s going to sound country no matter what he sings.

  9. He does and if someone picks him up and plans right he could have a successful niche.

    I think that it is Catie and Michael backing him up based on the dress.

    Weird thing I have noticed and it will be interesting to see more videos, but it looks like they aren’t giving Cade a mic in a lot of these that have shown up so far.

  10. Funny they captioned that the way they did since I wouldn’t know she was there if they didn’t tell us.

  11. What a fabulous experience for these young people to tour and get a real idea of life on the road—regardless where each finds their future.

  12. I noticed that too. I could be wrong, but I really doubt that his voice would work that well for harmony.

  13. You’re right. I thought one of them had a guitar, but I looked closer and it seems to be Catie and Michael. I expect they’re doing a lot of the harmony.

  14. I wouldn’t expect to see many. Newspapers (the ones that still exist) don’t do concert reviews all that much any more. Maybe someone who has a blog or some sort of other online presence will go to a show and write about it?

  15. It was sarcasm, lol. I thought is was just funny since it was evident that it was Michael at center stage. :)
