Season 10. FOX's Adam Housley talks with the top 11 contestants about
what they are feeling and how they are getting ready for their tour. For
the first time the IDOL tour buses will be a little more crowded in the
post season, housing 11 finalists, instead of the traditional 10, but
this group of singers is happy to share the stage and spotlight.
"It's always been a dream of mine to play on a big stage at an arena or
you know what I mean just in front of that many people," says AMERICAN
IDOL contestant Naima Adedapo.
"It should be so much fun because I can already see us having jam
sessions in the bus," says AMERICAN IDOL contestant This Megia.
"I'm so excited about the tour, the fans, and being with 10 other people
I absolutely love and adore," says AMERICAN IDOL contestant Lauren
When they head out on the road, the arenas will be packed with 15,000
screaming fans, instead of just 700 in the studio audience.
"I'm going to be very nervous when I get up there the first time," says AMERICAN IDOL contestant Scott McCreery.
"My first concert was Spice Girls at Madison Square Garden and I was
sitting there with my Spice Girls tshirt like 'One day, I really hope
that's me' and now it finally is," says AMERICAN IDOL contestant Pia
For the remaining 9, the competition continues to heat up, with very little room for mistakes.
"I've been playing my own original music for 5 years and then to get in
this other mindset of having to learn a new cover song every week and
trying to make it your own is freaking me out," says AMERICAN IDOL
contestant Paul McDonald. "I'm starting to get better at it."
"I've done 3 really big rock songs the past 3 weeks," says AMERICAN IDOL
contestant James Durbin. "That this is my chance to pull back and
really show that deeper more emotional side of me."
The 49-city tour kicks off in Salt Lake July 6. Don't miss the next
