Unexpected moments boost the touring Idols
There are some things that will never be surprising about the American Idols Live tour:
First of all, it will be crowded. The annual tour features the “American Idol” top 10, and they all have their solo moments on stage as well as duos, trios and group numbers.
Secondly, it will be loud. Many “Idol” fans are teens, so when a Blake Lewis or even a Gina Glocksen takes the stage, you can barely hear what they’re saying above the screams…..
Exclusive Interview: Sabrina Sloan, from ‘American Idol’
If American Idol was a show judged by experts in as objective a way as possible, Sabrina Sloan would have at least made the top 6 last season. Sabrina Sloan, a 27-year-old from California, has an incredible voice and it was shocker when America eliminated Sabrina from the competition after making it into the top 16 on American Idol. Thankfully, we haven’t heard the last of Sabrina. She stopped by BuddyTV recently to discuss her time on the show and what she’s got coming up in the future…..

Love him or hate him, Sanjaya is back for Idols Live tour
While this summer’s American Idol Live tour may be headlined by the winner of this season’s competition, Jordin Sparks, and runner-up Blake Lewis, the top drawing card may well be Sanjaya Malakar.

Make Me Heal Top Ten Hottest Celebrity Breast Implants
…Celebrities are humble these days, especially when the topic turns to plastic surgery. It is no different for one Kellie Pickler of American Idol, who got breast implants which she showed off in a return performance on American Idol in March of 2007.

Wading through Pacific’s ocean
…Actually, I’m far more interested in whether success has spoiled Chris Daughtry (Wednesday, 7 p.m., $39.50, with 12 Stones), given that his omnipresent debut is the biggest smash so far in a tremendously weak sales year. Will he come off humble yet defiantly strong in his first large-scale O.C. show, following a well-received set earlier this year at the Mouse House? Can he reproduce as robustly live what so many have taken to on record? Will I wish I was actually home when he starts to sing “Home”? …
