American Idol Live! Tour 2011
is a success. From the stunning costumes to the wonderful group
performances, the top 11 finalists sure did prove themselves. We were
lucky enough to catch the gang at their recent tour stop in
concert consisted of each idol performing a few numbers individually
along with group performances starting from the 11th contestant and
ending in the much-anticipated set from the crowned 2011 American
Idol, 17-year-old, Scotty
had severe bronchitis and was unable to perform the night we went. We
spoke to Lauren’s mom beforehand, and she sent her sincerest
apologies to everyone. After speaking with her, we know Lauren truly
appreciates her fans and never plans to disappoint them in the
show must go on, right? So here are our highlights from the concert
from the opening to the finale!
concert began with the Idol girls performing, “Born This Way” by
Lady Gaga, and the energy filled the arena.
Toscano managed to set the
bar high for the rest of her fellow contestants. She and Stefano
Langone‘s performance of
“California King Bed” by Rihanna was beautiful and breathtaking.
cutie Stefano switched it up with the dance number, “DJ Got Us
Falling In Love” by Usher. Stefano worked the stage and boy, can
he dance! Spoiler alert: Stefano shows his abs. Let’s just say, we
eye out for Casey Abrams.
With “Smooth” by Rob Thomas, and “Harder to Breathe” by
Maroon 5, Casey’s vocals blew us away. Plus, his energy and bubbly
personality on stage were contagious.
Reinhart rocked it. Boy,
can that girl hit the notes! Her raspy voice brought a new edge to
the classics she sang. “Bennie and the Jets” by Elton John was
our fave and it even got the ‘rents in the audience to sing along.
the much-anticipated wait, the American Idol cowboy cutie, Scotty
McCreery, took to the
stage. Scotty began with his crazy deep vocals in “Your Man” by
Josh Turner, which had every girl swooning from all sections of the
arena! Scotty also performed “Are you Gonna Kiss Me or Not” and
his single, “I Love You This Big.” Look out, country music,
‘cause Scotty is on his way to the top.
Scotty won as best performer of the night in our eyes. We can’t
wait for his debut album, Clear
As Day, to hit stores Oct.
Scotty perform "Gone" by Montgomery Gentry (and gracefully
recover from a minor stage faux pas) below…
to see which cities the Idols are headed to next!
