FOX is streaming the parade live on their website.

Plus, I’m hearing Jason and his fiance, Mandy Mayhall, are getting married tomorrow (Jan 2). Jason tweeted about a bachelor party on the 29th, “Bachelor partayyyy!!! Bowling Poker and pool all in the same room!”

Season-mate David Archuleta tweeted yesterday, “Made it safely to Dallas! Hanging with my cousin and aunt for New Years Eve. Had Indian food, and About to watch Sherlock Holmes.”

Reportedly, Brooke White will also be there! Update: (Aw. Except Not. Brooke just tweeted that she’s at home because she’s not feeling well, “so I was supposed to be in Dallas for the next few days… but had to stay home cause I’m not feelin’ too swell:(“.

  5. Awesome for Jason and Mandy!:-D. They can have some time together before he heads out on his tour. Can’t wait to see pictures of the wedding.

  6. Sort of off topic, but I was at a NYE party last night, and the conversation turned to Idol. A couple there remarked on how exceptional the Season 7 contestants were in terms of talent and heart! I agree!

    Congratulations Jason and Mandy!

  7. awwww congrats to Jason and Mandy. I wish them both nothing but happiness. :)

  8. That is so sweet that Brooke and David A are going to be there for the wedding:)

    Well out of that set I like LJFILA the least. I prefer the other four:) I’ve been following him since last year on AI (watched many many youtubes from his “date nights” to the TAMU concert, webisodes ecetera). I haven’t liked some of his new songs and hoped he would be a bit edgier but that’s just me. I hope he does well – he seems like a good guy (with undeserved ignorant preconceptions still hounding him on other sites).

  10. It looks like Brooke might not make it after all. Message on twitter:

    so I was supposed to be in Dallas for the next few days… but had to stay home cause I’m not feelin’ too swell:( about 1 hour ago from web

  11. Woohoo!! Congrats Jason! Sorry, Brooke won’t be able to make it, from what it sounds like. Hope we get some pics.

  12. Nice that David A. will be there, he and Jason seem to have become good friends ….and it looks as if little Jackie is very excited that Archie is coming too….haha. : )
    Mandy is adorable and Jason is very photogenic so there should be some beautiful wedding pictures.
    Good wishes for much happiness to them both !

  13. Congrats to Jason. Only he tweeted tonight that he’s sick, taking Theraflu, and going to bed. Bummer!

    Can someone tell me about how those (ahem, of us) who pre-ordered Jason’s CD are supposed to get the EP? I thought I read here (somewhere) that we’d get it free, or something, but I’ve received no notice from Jason’s site. I guess I expected I would, but maybe no.

    Anybody, anybody? :-)

  14. Poor Jason is sick. Not good to be sick on your wedding day. I hope it’s just a “24-hour flu.” How in the world did he catch Brooke’s bug? ;) I’m glad Archie is done with performing for a little while. ‘Cuz if he catches whatever Jason has, it won’t matter too much. Haha.

    jasoncastro: i am sickkkk. not fun. hope you all are warm and healthy this new year!

  15. My goodness, poor Jason.:-(. I remember him tweeting something about a sore throat, I think, a few days ago. I pray he feels better for his wedding. Hubby and I had to deal with some medical treatments for me on our honeymoon, so I can understand the possible damper that not feeling well may put on such a special event.

  16. weareallinnocent I believe JCM will mail out the EP’s a few days before it’s released. That’s what they did with the calendars that were part of the package deals after the album release date was pushed back.

  17. Wishing Jason and Mandy a happy life together. Sorry to hear that he is sick and Brooke won’t be able to attend the wedding.

  18. David enjoying his family and the weather before the wedding?

    DavidArchie: It’s nice to spend time with family. Spent the morning with my aunt and cousin. Loving the sunny weather in Dallas :)

    or possibly email out a download code like they did for the Sweet Medicine bonus track
    But I hope you are right, HannaB4, I would prefer the actual EP…just cause.

    Jason and Mandy are now man and wife…and I’m hustling back to Rockwall to preach on Col. 4:2-4.

    Yay! Congrats Jason and Mandy!

  22. I wonder if Archie sang at the wedding. That would be great if he did.

  23. Congrats to Jason and Mandy! What a way to start off the New Year!! :D I hope for their sake Jason feels better soon….!!
