American Idols Live 2011!

August 16, 2011 - Kim Collette
Last Tuesday, my Mom, Aunt, Cousin and I went to see the American Idols Live 2011 Tour in Columbus. This was the 3rd year that we have seen the "live tour." The other 2 years we went, Carrie Underwood and Taylor Hicks were winners. And, let me tell you....this was.....by far....the best of the concerts we have ever seen.

This year (because of the way the season played out), we had a top 11 on tour. We saw Pia, Stefano, Naima, Haley, James, Paul, Casey, Thia, Jacob, Lauren and Scottie. As in years previous, there were group songs, duets and solo performances. Not one of them disappointed me. Even the contestants that I didn't care too much for during the actual season impressed me. It truly was the best Idols Concert I've been too.

If I had to pick a bottom "3" like is done during the season, I would go with Pia (who sounded wonderful, but was stagnant in movement), Thia and Lauren (who both again sounded wonderful, but were a little boring). Top "3" of the night were Casey, Scottie and James. All 3 showed great stage presence and truly looked as though they were having fun doing what they were doing.

And who can beat the cost? Most concerts you go to these days can cost anywhere from $70-$200 for tickets. This show.....$45. The other bonus was that the show was right around 2 1/2 hours long! So....only $45 for 11 performers and 2 1/2 hours of entertainment. You can't go wrong!

My only "problem" came towards the end of the show. All of the Idols came out to sing one last song together and they were wearing #2 OSU jerseys.....Terelle Pryor. Yikes! I think the Schottenstein Center or OSU or whomever gave them the jerseys, could have made a little better decision on the number.

And...if that was my only gripe....you know I had a great time!

Until next time friends!
