American Idol Night



We had the time of our life last night! Thanks to our friends Colton and Courtney Gibbie, We got the VIP treatment at American Idol last night! The fun and excitement started even before we got into the studio. We First saw Janice Dixison, former super model, who in real life is the thinnest thing I have ever seen! We were able to talk to her and her daughter in the green room. She was very nice! Before the Show we grab a Kodak moment with former Idol Brandon from this season. We say Simon and Randy and Nigel Lithgo all arrive but quickly enter... I couldn't get my camera out fast enough!

Once inside we had access to the green room and tables of foods! I was too excited to eat! We had amazing seats! The studio is of course much smaller then it looks like on tv! Some of the other celebrates in attendance were Ivanca Trump, Shawn from Boyz II Men, One of the students from that 5th grader game show, and hr sister who is on Gilmore Girls. There were so many familiar faces in the audience too but we couldn't pin point who they were.

We also meet Ken Baker the big wig at US magazine. He is good friends with our our friends and the nicest guy! Once the show was over we all mingles with the stars. They were all so great and willing to chat and take pictures. The studio also is home to Dancing with the Stars so that is why we got some great pictures with that cast. It was awesome!!!

The funniest part of the night was that we saw our stage manager from Family Feud working the show. It was great to catch up with him!

All the contestant did AMAZING last night. Phil and Chris were my favorites of the night, But honestly they were all just so great! Listen for me tonight when it airs. I am the person that screams when Simon is commenting on Chris's performance!!

It was the best time ever!
